I'm having the same problem with my 8 month old. He cries every time I'm not in his sight which makes it kind of difficult to find a baby sitter. Any suggestions??

Your baby is still very young. Babies that are as young as your are impossible to spoil. I've read about this is many different books. Being new to this world your baby enjoys and feel protected in your arms. I know that it's hard when you have things to do and your baby just wants to be held but it's all a part of motherhood. Have you tried an ergo pack? I have one and I love it! When our son was small he loved to be held. When I needed to get things done around the house I would just put him in the pack and handle my chores. They are wonderful and they keep baby close. Hang in there and try to enjoy this very special time in life. Babies grow too darn fast to not enjoy each and every moment. Our son will be 1 on Monday and this past year has just flown by! Enjoy your little one :)

My daughter is 14 months and she is just not starting to do this. I stay home with her during the day and only go to school 3 nights a week. so i spend time with her all day. But not we'll be sitting here and she looks at me and starts screaming. I dont get it.

i dont think its from bein spoiled, i agree with pia, sounds like separation anxiety, my son was the same n still is a bit now, they grow out of it n distraction help too

How old is he? He may be going through separation anxiety. Babies usually get it around 8-9 months, some severely, others not at all. There's heaps of info on the internet about it, and speaking to a child health nurse about it will help as well. They will have all sorts of tips for helping you and your son deal with it.
