How old is your son? Babies experience seperation anxiety around 9 months. My daughter is almost ten months. She screams and cries even if I go upstairs for something. Her dad was holding her, I went upstairs for 2 minutes and she didn't stop crying until I came down and picked her up. I'm also with her all day, so she is really close to me. It's really intresting that he was fine with the babysitter.

my son is just about 2 months. See thats what i thought. about him being older when the sepration begins. But nope, and yea its only for my hubby.

yes, usually i get up with my ds (8 weeks old) but my dh tried one night and all he did was cry so I finally got up to get him at 4:30am and he was fine right then, he loves to lay on my chest and sleep. but i love it!!!! haha to my dh. lol.

My baby did the same thing up until just recently - she's now 6 months. Her dad has her one day a week to himself (I work that day and he has it off). I guess she's just feeling more comfortable with him? I don't know but she would literally scream from the time I left (for the store, the gym, to the bank for just a little while) until I came home and picked her up. She still has middle of the night issues with him though but after 6 months of no sleep, he just has to get up with her for me sometimes - even if it means they're both up from midnight to 4am like last night. :(
