Please don't make the mistake of sneaking out. It's easy for mom to avoid the tantrum but it creates trust issues for baby who will learn that you could disappear at any time without notice. As a nanny I've seen time and time again how this method of leaving can create such anxiety that the child will cry if mommy so much as leaves baby's view.
First, find someone you can trust to entertain your child in your absence. Then, when you decide it is time to leave, say a quick (no more than 1 minute) goodbye to your child then walk out the door. Your chosen caregiver should be able to entertain your child enough for him to realize he can have lots of fun while mommy is gone.
Eventually baby will be so used to your departure you may even be a little hurt by his indifference. Don't worry, baby still loves you, he just trusts you will return and has begun to learn valuable lessons in patience and trust.
