  • Depends... can you get nothing done with out him whining or crying or is it that they follow you around the whole day? Are you a SAHM or do you work outside the home? when does it bother you the most?

  • They are supposed to be attached! :) But my 2 year old used to always want me in the room with him. I would get him interested in a toy, and then I would talk to him as I walked out of the room and then come right back, I got further and further away but would still make sure I was within hearing distance. The more he saw that I left but came right back, the more comfortable he got with it.

  • They pass this phase quickly so enjoy it while you can. My daughter (my first daughter) was always like this, I enjoyed every minute of it, now at 32, she still seeks me out everyday to vent or tell me about her day, not a day or event goes by that she does not run by me first, of course she does not always follow my suggestions and ends up doing what she thinks it is best, but I love it!
