Hello every one. I'm a first time momma of a beautiful 6mo baby boy. I don't know where to start. I rocked & co-slept w/my baby for about the first 3/4 months of his life &
He would respond well & we had a good time. I'm now slowly sleep training & so far so good he's been sleeping in his crib since last month or more, I think. To make a long story short, my son is soo attached to me. He even cries when I leave him w/his dad. Especially at night. He worries his grandparents because he'll cry for an hour if I leave him w/them. How can I teach him that it's ok when I'm not around &
He'll be ok. Side note: my husband doesn't bathe him, occasion all gives him a bottle &'doesn't really know how to put him to bed. Please help w/any advice or what worked
For you. I feel like this will never pass

It will pass. It's a perfectly normal stage that many, many babies/young children go through. He'll get better w/ time and maturity. I don't have any advice or tips as my son had it bad and the ONLY thing that helped was time... he had it bad for years too.

Thank you. It's so discouraging & at times it seems like it's not getting better
