What To Do About DCG Who Cries When I Leave The Room?
My newest DCG is starting her 3rd week here and the transition is getting much better. She is 16 months. The only problem now Is she cries and then screams when I leave the room when she is in her high chair or when I step over the baby gate into my bedroom to use my ensuite bathroom. She can still hear me and see me as I wash my hands but the screaming lasts until I am back in the room.
I have been talking to her as I use the bathroom and saying its ok and I wiol be right back, ringing her songs, or even saying 'ok that's enough crying" nothing so far has worked.
I feel like I am walking around on egg shells every day with her. WWYD?
ETA: When I am walking away when she is in her highchair it is either while I am getting her food ready or when she has finished eating and has been washed up and I am just getting stuff ready for her to get down. I do not leave her alone while eating!
