Seperation anxiety in an almost 2 year old?

MaryKate - posted on 11/21/2014 ( 1 mom has responded )




My daughter will be 2 in Jan and its been just her and I from the start but a few months ago I met an amazing guy and we are dating.
This morning when I dropped my daughter off at my aunts so i could go to work she gave me a serious talk/guilt trip about my daughter and how in the last month she's gotten really bad clingy and whatnot and how there must be some up setter in my life
& my aunt basically told me I'm hurting Hope by Being in a relationship with my boyfriend and maybe I should put my relationship on hold.
And how I don't spend enough time with Hope so why would I put someone in there that takes away from the little time I do spend with her. And how she's gotten dramatically worse over the last month. This came completely out of the blue and she is my 1st child so what if I am scarring her and do not even realize?
I am just at a complete loss, I know that this semester has been hard on her since I am taking 15 units of school and working two days a week but shes my world.
I'm just wondering how many other moms went thru this?
For the last month Ive been trying to get her to sleep in her own bed and its a terrible battle every month.

MaryKate you are not alone! I was 15 when I had my first daughter and if you can guess, her dad did not stick around! I dated off and on until i finally met my husband when she was 4 years old, she now calls him dad. I tell you this because I was there dating, people judging me for dating, the only advice I could give you is to trust yourself,one big thing with me is I never introduced my daughter to anyone unless it was serious, she already lost one father she doesn't need people coming in and out of her life. You have to have some time to yourself and as long as you are putting her first that i what matters!
Good luck!
