We used a sling with our son. It was the only way to get anything done. He hated being put down even for naps:-( He's three now and very independent so don't worry it doesn't last forever:-)

She just wants to be reassured that you are there. Babies think so differntly than we do. They don't understand that they are sperate beings. They go through these stages where they have seperation anxiety.
Take heart, I read somewhere that when children seem to regress, it's because they are about to take a developmental leap forward. So, hang in there. This too shall pass!

Another thing I thought of on my drive home last night, I used a moby wrap and baby bjorn ALL THE TIME at home when I just needed an extra hand. My son was really clingy so when I needed to eat or drink 5 cups of coffee because i was so tired I plopped him in my wrap or carrier and we hung out that way.

my kids are older now, 11, 10,8, they did not cry much and all wanted to be held. I had no problem holding them (sometimes all 3 at the same time) and putting stuff off, I also had no problem letting them cry so I could do what needed to be done. I am not a fan of "crying it out", but I knew that sometimes it is ok to cry as long as they are safe and not in danger or hungry. Sometimes some kids need extra holding. emoticon

My two month old loves when I vacuum!! Usually I set him in his bouncy seat and vacuum and then when I am done he is content and plays in his seat for awhile!

My son would cry and cry every time I put him down for months! Daycare really seemed to help because it gave him a chance to watch other kids and not realize that he wasn't getting 100% of my attention. I would just slowly start to put her down more and more and try to stop the crying by doing entertaining things rather than picking her up. I did a full dance in front of my front window (with an unknown audience) once to get my son to stop crying in his seat :) He did though! He just started laughing at me.

My 5-month old daughter cries every time that I put her down so she can play with some of her toys and so I can get a few things done around the house. When I pick her up she is fine. I don't want her to get the idea that she can be held all the time. She is fine when she is at the baby-sitter's house and will play for awhile in the excersaucer. When she is at home she cries after a minute of playing in it. Any suggestions on what to do?
