19 month old suddenly having screaming fits every evening unless mommy holds him. Please help

My baby is 19 months old. He has recently in the past two weeks started with a seperation anxiety from me. From the moment I pick him up from day care he is clinging. In the carseat on the way home he cries cause I am not holding him. I have to hold him while cooking dinner, etc. He doesnt want to play with his sibling. This goes one each evening for a few hours. I have tried not picking him up and he continues to cling and scream. He is usually worn out and better by 7 or so when his father his home. What should I do. Is this odd?

  • Did he just start daycare or has he been going?? Maybe you should check and see if something's going on there...don't want to scare you but kids will let you know if something's wrong....
