Hi everyone. I have an 8 month old son. We are AP'ers, and are going through a bit of separation anxiety (SP) lately. We wear our baby boy, co-sleeps, etc. Lately, he gets upset if he can't see me, must have me hold him, I am the only one who seems to be able to comfort him. Even if dad and I are standing next to each other, and dad is holding him, he cries and wants me. I have been told this is common. Here is my issue. I don't want to rush to "fix" him every time he is upset. I believe it is sending the message that "I am the only one" and inadvertently expresses something must be wrong with dad if he can't comfort him. I also do not believe in crying it out. So, my question (finally), anyone have experience with this? I know it is more common during developmental changes. I guess I don't want to prolong this, and be dealing with it for years. Thanks! Glad there are so many other ap'ers out there!
