My 15mo is very confident and happy (most of the time).
This morning at playgroup he kept wanting to be picked up and cuddled by one of the mums - she was basically a stranger, we had never been to this playgroup before.
In group situations he is very happy to wander away from me and do his own thing.
Does this seem unusual to you? Is it a sign of a confident, secure little man?
The reason I ask is my mum mentioned kids without a good attachment often go to anyone, and now I'm worried.

DD is notorious for this!
She regularly joins strange families in the shops, and will wander off with them, she goes to anyone.
Im just glad shes not shy hahaha

I'd be happy at having such a happy, confident child! Don't over think it, your DS sounds lovely

LOL at least yours doesn't try to leave with them too! DS has been known to try to climb into someone's stroller or wait patiently by a stranger's car to be put in a car seat too some kids are just sociable

My 21 month old DD is also extremely confident and a social butterfly! Just yesterday at the park she walked over to another mum who was putting her daughter on the high jungle gym, put her arms around this mums legs and said 'up there', wanting a lift up too. She will have a chat to anyone that will listen! I think it's a sign of a happy, content toddler who is very trusting! I have been told since my DD was a few months old that I would end up with a super clingy child due to BFing, baby wearing etc so I love that we have completely proved that stupid theory wrong!

That's great. It's just all DS' friends are terribly shy. I wasn't sure if he was normal or not!
I am really stoked to have such a social toddler, really. My mum just made me second guess myself. I'm honestly such an anxious mum I worry about everything!

I definitely wouldn't worry about it, he sounds delightful!!

DS is constantly trying to get adopted/abducted. Especially if the 'new' family have food.
He's not exceptionally sociable, but very good at getting what he wants.
