    It's interesting that it's the second child in so many cases who is more attached. I would have thought it was the other way around. Glad its not just us in any case

    It was in my case too. I don't think I've done much different, just completely different personalities.

    YEs definitely. DD1 liked everyone better than me Would go to absoultely anyone and would only stop crying for other people. I couldn't make sense of it.

    DD2 was the complete opposite she was and still is my little shadow
    DD3 was similar and is still very shy around strangers..

    My second child is very attached to me. She only goes to my sister when I am not around. My first child on the other hand is attached to his father more, but he's easy going kid he's happy with anyone (who wants to play with him..)

You cannot spoil them at this age and are providing a wonderful, secure introduction to the world!!
    That is good to know, I think other people have made me a bit self conscious of what I am doing because they tell me I am not leaving him enough, holding him to much or going to him to quickly.

    It sounds like you're doing a wonderful job My almost four year old has been raised with attachment parenting and is confident, independent and loving. It's about giving your child what it needs and fir some kids that's more cuddles etc than others
