I have been with my daughter 24/7 since she has been born. Now she won't ever leave my side, I can't even go to the bathroom without her crying. She don't even go to her dad. The only thing I can think of to do is leave her with people but I know she will cry and I don't know if the people I leave her with can handle her crying for awhile. Please give me advice on what to do! Please and thank you!!!

Honestly, the best thing for you both is to let her cry it out with someone you can trust with her. My daughter did that for a while...but luckily she has gone past it FINALLY. It is the most heart wrenching thing to have the center of your universe crying hysterically - but once you are out of sight for a bit, she will look for something else to appease her. I always made sure my daughter (Katelyn) was surrounded by her favorite things whenever I had to leave...her favorite blankie, her stuffed monkey and also made sure whoever she was with wassupplied with all her favorite snacks. Be tough, I remember crying the first day I did it all the way to work. When I got there I called immediately and there was no screaming in the background. She had settled in and was doing better than me!! Best of luck to you!
