Separation Anxiety

Practicing healthy goodbyes can help ease separation anxiety, which normally begins between 8-10 months and can reappear throughout childhood.

Help parents to:

  • Avoid sneaking out. Parents should give a quick and upbeat goodbye.
  • Stay calm. If parents appear upset, chances are that baby will be too.
  • Remind their baby that they will come back, and let them know that whomever they are staying with cares for them very much.
