My darling son has become my constant shadow in recent months, and it is driving me insane!! He won't let me leave the room he is in without panicking and following me. I can't pee alone, shower alone or even go to get something in another room for 5 seconds without him bolting after me. I have to be right near him, even him being able to see me in another room doesn't work for him. He was never like this until recently, I used to be able to get his breaky and plonk him in front of the television while I showered etc but no more. I expect it has something to do with bubba on the way.. but it really is getting to me and I've found myself getting cranky with him, then feel evil.
Anyone been through similar and have any tips to share?

Subbing, my 28 month old is the exact same and I also have a bub on the way which I think may be the issue too.
I can sympathise!! *hugs*

My 2.5yo was like this when I was pregnant, to the extreme. Very exhausting. It all changed once bub was born

Lol! Yes, for the better. She surprised us all by absolutely doting on the baby and that clinginess completely disappeared. I think she didn't completely understand what was happening but once the baby arrived she realised that it wasn't so bad and relaxed into the new situation.
She's always been home full time with me, so not sure about the child care aspect sorry.
