PLEASE HELP before I lose it!

So my son will not let me walk away from him at all, or he starts screaming. I laid him on the bed and sat in the recliner across the room and he screams. I literally have to be holding him or at least sitting beside him or he starts screaming. It's beginning to stress me out and wear me out. I don't know what to do anymore. Please help!

    Some babies are more sensitive to separation than others; it's a matter of temperament.All you can do is pay attention to how your baby reacts to situations and respond appropriately.A strong attachment figure, whether it's a parent or a familiar trusted caregiver, can give baby the confidence to explore further. As soon as he becomes comfortable on one level, he moves to the next. Step by step he'll climb each rung toward independence‚ÄĒchecking to be sure that you're right there, holding the ladder.

      I know how you feel. Eva was the same way. Not all of them are like this. Put him in a safe place, get your cup of coffee, get your drink. Make sure he's safe, he'll be fine. I don't like to hear the crying either, but a little at a time and he'll get used to it.

      Might help to start off with to put him down where he can see you, talk to him to try and keep him calm.

      Get down on the floor with him and distract him with something that plays music with bright lights.. Move a little farther away a little at a time. Take it slow.

      Does any of that make sense? Hugs, Sidney. You are not alone.

        Yep sounds like the abandonment phase. My son's going through it at bit at the moment. If he even sees me head to where I keep my keys and bag he will start crying thinking I'm about to leave the house on him. When he was younger going through it I would wear a baby carrier so I could get things done around the house, but now he's older (and my back can't stand the weight) I find diversions are working the best. If hubby is around he will distract Jayson with a toy so I can sneak off, or if I'm not actually going anywhere I will walk over and give him a cuddle and show him one of his toys and then once he gets involved in that I'll go back to what I was doing.

          Wear him with a carrier, it will get easier. Just a phase.
