I have a 6 month old son, and am a stay at home mom. I have actually never left him with anybody, including his dad, for more than 40 min since he was born.My son is very attached to me, and I was wondering if anybody knew any good ways to make him a little more independant. He is almost to the point now where he won't nap unless Im laying with him, he sleeps in bed with us and Im basically always holding/sitting and playing with him. Even when daddy's home and I leave him with dad while I shower, he cries and screams until I come back. I would like to be able to put him down and do laundry, cook food, etc without a screaming match. Do I let him cry it out? Any advice will help, thanks!!
