Separation anxiety in babies

Your baby can't stand your absences? Separation anxiety normal for little ones. Here are a few things to help you understand it.

  • Separation anxiety is a normal stage of emotional development and begins when babies understand that people exist even when they are not present.
  • Toddlers may experience it as early as 6 or 7 months, but for most, it peaks between 10 and 18 months and diminishes by age 2.
  • To help your baby cope better, you can gently introduce them to other people.

Sleep separation anxiety for my 5month old. I need some tips. As soon as I put her down she wakes up from her nap and starts to cry. Usually I can put my hand on her and she goes back to sleep but now it feels like I have to hold her for her to sleep. How would you handle the separation anxiety

I'm a stay at home mom pregnant with my second. Every time my husband leaves for work I get separation anxiety and I don't know how to manage it I suffer from depression anxiety and PTSD and I'm scared it's a sign I'm developing pre symptoms for depression...

Called my fiancé to check on the kids… I guess Wiggy girl is still not in the best mood. Not wanting put down but not really happy regardless either. Had my fiancé give her my shirt I wore to bed to see if that will make her happy, he’s supposed to call me here shortly. I guess she was like this yesterday until I got home. Can 3 month olds even have separation anxiety?!

Bro this shit getting annoying… plays your game from the time you get up which is about 9am, and then when it’s 1:30 in the morning and I ask you to come to bed because I haven’t spent any time with you all fucking day and can’t sleep without you because I have separation anxiety and can’t fall asleep unless you’re next to me and you wanna bitch and say “I only have the weekend to stay up” like you don’t need to stay up all weekend and play your game. You literally play it for hours upon hours you can get tf off and spend time with me. It’s not even spending time with me I literally asked you to come and sleep. Am I not even worth that? Fuck. I wish I could just do something, but I literally sit on this couch all day on my phone. I walk around my apartment complex for a few but after a while I can’t. So I literally spend hours on my phone doing nothing. I’m just tired of begging for attention and getting ignored

I feel like a complete failure as a mother. My daughter will be 14 weeks in 3 days. Not only will my baby not take a bottle, she has developed Separation Anxiety/Stanger Anxiety. My MIL comes over at least 3 times a week and would love to see her and smile at her. Now she cries with her or anyone she has seen before. I had to get groceries but didn’t want to take her out in the cold/rain. My MIL watched her for me and said as soon as I left she screamed herself to sleep. I regret not taking her out more now but with COVID and how cold it’s been I didn’t want to expose her. I’m anxious to bring anyone around her now and so discouraged. I feel like I have failed her.

I can’t stand my dogs 😔😭 it makes me feel so bad and selfish but I can’t stand them. Since I knew I was pregnant I don’t know why I just can’t be around them, I don’t feel like petting them or cuddling with them, playing etc like before. I just can’t stand anything they do (my small one is very stubborn and the big one has separation anxiety) I just don’t know if it’s normal or I’m being mean. But they really piss me off at a whole different level I have never been before. Before being pregnant they were my babies, I spoiled them and everything. I just don’t know.
