Okay so I am due March 2nd and lately(For the past month and a half) my son has been really clingy to me. He refuses to listen to me but when it comes down to him having a nap or going to bed at night, he wants me laying with him. He will scream and cry if I don't stay in his room. Mind you, I have not stayed in there with him. I just tell him good night and tell him that I love him and close his door. Daemon has been throwing HUGE fits every night. He will smack mine and my hubby's face, he will scratch at us, kick us, pinch us and everything. I miss my sweet little baby boy. He will kick my tummy and everything. It breaks my heart when he does that and then begs me to stay in the room with him and I don't. I feel horrible every night when I walk out of that room and he is screaming. He does have a night light in there and he has slept in his own room with the door closed since he was 1. He has NEVER been a violent baby or anything. I'm sure it is a phase and part of the terrible twos but I don't know what to do with him. I am scared that he is going to lash out at Ronin when he is born. I know Daemon will make a great big brother. I just want to know why he is being so clingy and everything.
So my question is, has anyone else gone through that? Is he being clingy because he knows Ronin is going to be born soon. Is is part of his terrible twos phase or is he just going through a clingy stage?
