Start Teaching Your Baby To Be Away From You For Short Periods Of Time
At this stage, your child needs to start getting habitual of staying away from you for short durations. No doubt about the fact that your child needs to be independent one day and cannot possibly cling onto you for life. However, before taking a plunge into making your child grossly independent, ensure that you know her mental and emotional state.
Every child is different and what has worked for others may not work for you. Your child may still need you around most of the time and would not prefer anyone else over you. Even though this may prove slightly difficult for you, but a child’s need at this age must be prioritized. So before you decide if your child should spend time away from you, ensure that you are not doing anything that will make your baby feel insecure. Remember the fact that every decision you take impacts your baby and so it must be taken with utmost care and diligence.
