My 7months old LO never used to nehave like this…he’s a happy baby and goes to people’s arms quite happily. Just recently he’s started to feel anxious and searches for me everywhere. he doesnt like if he cannot see me in the kitchen. Its not that he wants to be in my lap all the time, but he’llstart crying if cant see me for quite some time…. is it just because of this phase of life ?

  • yep it will take bub a little while to realise that just because they can’t see mum, doesn’t mean that mum is gone forever! yeah they do get clingier at this stage and it varies for the age that they get more confident.!


  • I think it is normal for this age. My son was the same around that age.


  • it is normal seperation anxitey dont stress keep it up as long as they learn you will always return they will be happy in the end. They use it as a kind of blackmail over mum so they rules..


  • Definitely a phase – a lot of bubs go through this phase. If you are concerned, talk to your community nurse for reassurance as you know your bub better than anyone else.
