My son has all over sudden turned extremely clingy he has a 5 month old sister who he's always been fine with but he went and stayed with family for a holiday for 3 weeks who he goes down to every month for a week so very close to them but ever since he's come back he's been extremely clingy everytime I get up or go to leave the room or do something he screams the place down until I pick him back up he only stops if I pick him up. I try telling him that I'm here and not going anywhere but still wants to be picked up he's never been like this and he seems to of lost interest in things he's loved because he always wants me holding him or on my lap who won't go to anyone else. The other day we went to sleep and I had to hide before he woke up just so I could go to the shop otherwise I would scream and he was fine until he saw me again. He's never been like this before and doesn't even want daddy who is also very close too. I'm finding it really hard as I have a 5 month old that takes up most of my time and dad works all day so on my own I need advice does anyone have any because I'm at a lose and I'm struggling

Hey sweetie, I am so sorry you are going through this. It would really concern me too. I am concerned. So if I understand right he went for 3 weeks this time and he usually goes for just a week? Is that correct?

I have some ideas, but if you answer that it will help.
