What do I do? My son is 5 months old. My husband watched him while I went to just go run a couple errands and get them done without my little guy. When I got home he was crying and my husband said he cried the whole time. He wouldn't take a bottle, which I tried earlier today just to know he could do it, and he did. He only wants momma. I am still nursing, although I can get him to take a bottle sometimes with a little working at it, but he won't take one from anyone else. It's really hard for me, cuz sometimes Mom just needs to go even for an hour, to get my hair done, a lunch with a friend, or maybe even to run errands alone like today. Any advice on what to do?? Just let him cry it out? (It's so sad to picture him crying all that time and then the instant I come home, he stops.) Please.., any advice? I don't know what to do.

I do try to do that, really. But then he just keeps crying and I grab him. I let my husband pick him up when he starts crying, but he doesn't budge so I comfort him. Then he completely stops crying.

Try having your husband take care of him while you are home and he can see you, but be doing other things and only show him attention when hes not crying with your husband I know it sounds bad but I've had to do the same thing with my little girl. Then you can work up to having that little bit of time to yourself without the baby. Its the only way we stay sane. lol
