My DD is 8months and has always had some form of seperation anxiety. For most of her life, I couldn’t leave the room but at least she let other people hold her. For the past few months, no one can even hold her. DH can, but only if I am not in the room. I don’t know what to do. Between YMCA and church nursery she is dropped off at other places 4-6x a week but ALWAYS cries (screams) the entire time until they call me to come pick her up.

I’ve read past posts on the boards and it seems like everyone else’s LO only had seperation anxiety for a phase- like a month or two. It’s been her whole life-8months of this so I don’t know if I can call it a phase ha. Maybe this is just her personality? Does anyone else have (or had) a child like this? How can I help her?
