5 months old and if she sees me leaving the room she starts to fuss. My husband gets so mad because if he's holding her and she can't see me she gets fussy... She can't even sit on the floor for more than 10 minutes just playing by herself without fussing... I don't know what else to do. I don't know how to get her to NOT be so clingy to me... I know the only reason my hubby gets mad is because he wants her to love him like she loves me... Please help?Answer Question

My daughter did this forever! It bothered my husband too. I felt bad because he is such a good dad. She is 18 months old now and loves her dad. Just the other day we were leaving him and she started shouting "Dad, DAD, DAD, DAD!!!" He had to walk us out and put her in her car seat.
Don't worry. I think it is natural for babies to be a little more attached to their mothers. Especially if you are a SAHM and/or breastfeeding.
