I have done that also.. We have two dogs and our kids love them.. So lots of time when my hubby is working during the day we use them or the bunnies to keep them busy... ( my hubby works 3rd but also has his own Con.Company.) I wish you all the best... Take Care and Best Wishes..

hey thats helps out alot..hes been acting this way since he could talk n its been since he was four months old..toys dont help out or books,when he sees his father leave n he screams so we decided to let his father slip out the back door while hes playing with his puppy..that puppy is a life saver sometimes lol

My 9 month old daughter does this all the time.. It is a stage i think that most kids go through.. My son however didn't start doing this till now and he is 2 years old... (didn't start till his sister started) Some parent refer to it as speration anxity... My doctor told me that most babies go thourgh this at around 6 to 11 months old.. Not true.. The only thing I find that works to to reasure them that you are not leaving and that they are fine.. I find with my son getting him playing with toys or books works awsome with him.. With my daughter I find that she is more comfy with being able to see me or getting her playing with toys and what not helps also.. Other then that not much you can do other then wait them out.. They say it will only last a couple of months.. I to am hoping that part is true... Hope this might be helpful.. best wishes and take care...
