I can't leave the house without my daughter freaking out!

My youngest daughter Lily just turned 1 a week ago and she is not really a clingy baby, sometimes she is but for the most part she just cruises around and does what she wants. Well for whatever reason, she does not like staying with DH. He doesn't have the most patience ever and he doesn't really know how to get her to stop crying or whatever so he gets frustrated but it is not as if he is mean to her or anything. I know babies can sense when you are aggitated but I can't leave the house without her freaking out. I have to wait until she is napping if I want to go anywhere without her. I can understand when she was a little baby but why is she still doing it? I can't even go to the bathroom alone, she will crawl over to the bathroom door and cry until I come out, same with a shower. It is ridiculous. She has plenty of toys and an older brother and sister to keep her entertained. And she is fine when I am just hanging out, she doesn't come and sit with me all the time or anything, she plays. I don't understand why she does this still. It would be nice to be able to go somewhere alone when she is not sleeping or in bed for the night. How do I get her to ease up? I don't mind taking her most places but sometimes I have to go alone, like when I work a few hours.

My boys were always like that, too. I would just occupy them with something and sneak away and out the door.

She just wants mommy. My kids all went through a stage like that where I couldn't even leave the room with out them getting upset, thankfully it didn't last to long.

I hope it doesn't last long. It really stresses my husband out when she is screaming and nothing he does to help makes her stop.
