I imagine it is. Seperation anxiety is rough with little ones. It will pass in time. If it's different family members every time, it will take more time. Maybe you could visit these family members with your baby and stay with him for a while. Have the family members sit on the couch holding him with you next to them. That may make him feel more secure as he gets used to others.

yes he crys the entire time and nobody can calm him down and he only stops when he see me or his daddy its very frustrating at times .

Hi, Wendy. It's normal. I think every mom has dealt with this when leaving our kids with other people other than who he/she feels secure with. Does he cry the entire time you or your partner is gone, or does he eventually calm down?
