Lucas has been super clingy the past couple of weeks. He always wants me, nothing to do with DH and if I leave the room he runs after me calling "ma ma!" when i was off on vacation last week i thought it would be helpful as he would be with me all week. It made things worse! Monday morning he clung to me and cried when I tried to drop him off at daycare. When we got home at night he started crying every time I left the room! he has been better since, but is still crying and clinging to me when I drop him off. My provider assures me he stops a couple of minutes after I leave.
I mentioned it in the chat thread, but they had a new girl start at daycare that was around 11 months and she was having huge anxiety attacks when she got dropped off. So much that she was upsetting the other kids and the animals that lived there. I thought it might be related to that, but it has been a little while now. Part of me wants to comfort and hold him when he is like this because maybe he is going through something and needs that comfort, but another part wonders if he is just going through a whiny phase. When we get home from work I try sitting with him and snuggling him but it doesn't seem to matter.
