High need baby...

I have a 13 months old daughter. She was born on december 17, 2008. She is a very high need baby. She wants me to pick her up whenever i am standing, She likes to play with toys only if i am sitting nearby, She sleeps in my bed, and she do not like to go to anybody except her dad. I am a stay at home mom so i am available for her all the time and if i am not in sight then her dad has to be there for her otherwise she will cry so hard. What i want to ask is anybody have a high need baby like mine? If yes then how do you deal with it???

You need to begin to give the child some space. give her time in her crib or playpen with toys to help her benefit from alone time. This will help her to progress. You have to be ready to let her cry from time to time. I did this with my son and now he can spend up to 45 mins on his own. It gives you the time to make a meal or take a break, which means the world when you are a stay at home mom.
