Need Help With Separation Anxiety

Topaz - January 20

My dd is 11 months old and the separation anxiety has kicked in big time. I'm getting married to her father in 6 months and I need to get her used to being with other people so she'll be okay throughout the weddding. I am a sahm and I just moved to a new area so she is with me all the time. I can't even take a shower without her crying the whole time. I"m going to start leaving her with my mom for a couple hours at a time when I visit. Does anyone have any tips to help me get through this phase?

I would join a mommy-and-me play group or even go to story time at the library. I would really try to social her as much as you can, even with you right there. When she learns that other people are ok, she will be incline to accept others watcing her.

I think kara has answered you in what you should do... Playgroups etc are great... get out as much as you can... kids r at the park, play centres etc... she needs more social interaction... Definitely leave her with your mum from time to time and persist, she may cry but eventually she will settle.. Maybe even some occasional care if thats possible... you get a break and she gets to play with other kids and other adults... Leave her with her dad too from time to time and you go out and spoil yourself... it will pa__s although my daughter can still be a bit funny sometimes and she is 19 mths, i made the mistake of not continuing occasional care but i do leave her with friends sometimes, my mum and brother etc.... she has other interaction besides me....good luck
