  • Most definitely. It's just a phase and he'll grow out of it. Almost all babies go through separation anxiety.

  • Especially when baby is as spoiled to you as you have Rayhan spoiled, a good momma does that, enjoy it wont last,LOL.

  • OMG my two year old is the same way, I even have to sneak to the bathroom cuz if he sees me get up he runs to me screaming wanting me to hold him. I think they just miss us, enjoys it while it lasts cuz evntually they grow up, these little moments don't last long.

  • 100% normal and will be for a long while yet.And that is NOT spoiling. Infants CANNOT be spoiled. Period.

  • I see that spoiled comment reply,LOL by gdiamante..
    .I agree,............ however this girl cannot even shower without taking him in with her, she says he doesnt cry, just screams at her and stops when he gets his way,
    she is my daughter, he is my granson..pretty sure she knows what Im doing and why................She is a few states away so about all I can do is see pics she sends and tease her when I can.--thanks for defending the 'spoiled' part anyway.
    She spends almost every minute apparently talking to him, playing even while in midst of other things so he expects to constantly hear and see her no matter what sh eis doing, even when on phone she spends as much or more time talking to Rayhan as she does us, seriously sometimes mid sentence she stops our conversation or others to respond to his cooes,...........she is a great mom,...and its good to hear her ignore me/others for him.
