Can't leave alone for one minute!
My dd is now 5 months old however in the last couple of weeks it has become more and more difficult to leave her to play on her own. Sometimes she just won't let me put her down and if I do she goes bananas - even going to the loo is a mission! I used to be able to leave her on her activity mat for 15mins or so while I made myself a cup of tea/did some housework etc but now she just looks at me and whimpers until I go to her. I'm worried that I'm letting her be dependent on me and having to spend all her waking hours keeping her company, do I just leave her or is it just a phase? Help!
