yeh great

Let her scream and she'll soon learn.

As long as she's fed, changed, winded, the right temperature and so on so forth just leave her to it and she'll soon get it out of her system.

My daughter was the same with her mum (not me just her mum) and she just had to ignore it for a while and she soon grew out of it. From what the Health Visitor was saying it's pretty normal anyway.

You may feel guilty doing it but as long as she has everything she needs and you're not leaving her alone for long periods she'll be fine.

Some babies are just more clingy than others - this heat cant help with her mood either. My son used to hate the heat!
Fingers crossed she soon settles xxx

RedIron gives good advice

As long as she has all her essentials things you will just have to let her cry it out, as hard as it will be and as horrible as you may feel.

She will learn eventually, you will both go mad if you just keep running to her everytime she cries, and she will know how to get your attention

I suggest ear plugs to help stick this out I feel for you both as I know what its like xx

that's really young for a baby to start that, usually more like 8-9 months. The usual tips are not really going to work for such a young baby, so don't really know what to suggest, sorry. Hope she settles soon xxx

The only thing I will say is not to pamper her, don't go running back to her when she does cry.

It varies, my daughter started it from a very young age but her mother was very clingy

yeh she has started young,guess tghe heat doesnt help

I agree with RedIron - it is just a phase she is going through. You need to nip this in the bud now, though, or else it will more difficult to stop. It is her only way of communicating and she probably feels a little scared to be left alone if she's not used to it. Why not have a mobile above her cot (or something similar) to distract her?

Chin up - it won't last forever!!!

what do you mean when you leave her, shes 6 weeks old where are you leaving her - lol

do you mean when you put her in her crib and leave the room, maybe its the silence she doesnt like

like i said in the topic its when we are out of her sight,if shes in her cot,left in her chair etc...also trust me with othr kids in our house there is no room for silence lol

put something like a tshirt that smells of mum in her cot next to her too, sometimes the smell is comforting. personally i could never leave mine to cry and bought a baby sling!

Im having the same problem with my little boy whos 14 months! hes always been clingy frm a VERY young age!!! He will now at last go t his grandparents but we cant leave him overnight as he cries all night! He wont even have a cuddle with anyone he doesnt know, A healer said he has issues trusting women but I dont know how to overcome this!!!!!!!

Have you tried swaddleing or a swing just so she feels secure and the swing will provide movement of being rocked x

6 weeks old is very early to be recognising being left in a room alone, and dont think you gonna stop her, all babies are different, some cry some dont, some feed well, some dont etc,etc

i used a baby monitor - the ones where you can talk through them. and my son stopped crying and wondered where he could here his mummy from... then either nodded off back to sleep or kept playing with toys etc.
