Help! I have just started back at work and am finding it really difficult to get dinner ready of an evening because my DS is super clingy. I realise that he is clingy because we are dealing with a bit of separation anxiety so I am not prepared to ignore him. We have to eat though! He is crawling and pulling himself up so if I leave him in the lounge room with toys (5metres away), he will follow me into the kitchen, bawling. He then pulls himself up on me or the drawers. I am worried about his safety, especially if the oven is on. Sooo...tell me, what can I cook that requires little prep and can be done with a clingy bub? Does such a thing exist or are we destined to starve? If you have been through this and have words of wisdom, please share!
