What is separation anxiety in children?
Separation anxiety normally begins when babies are about 6–7 months old. This is when they've learned that things and people still exist after they leave. This can be a challenging time both for parents and their babies, but it's a healthy milestone that most pediatricians look for in childhood development.
You might be wondering how your baby crying every time you are out of their sight is a good thing. But believe it or not, it is! It means that you and your baby have bonded. As they grow up, they will continue to depend on you for many things.
