: My 4 month child is not ready to be alone she never leaves me and cries whenever i m away from
: her what's the solution


I remember those days. I think she will grow out of it. If it continues until she is past 1, then there may be one day where you may need to let her cry. My 2-year-old was so bad that I couldn't even sit on the toilet without me holding her, so I had to let her cry. It did break my heart but by doing that she learned that playing alone can be fun too. She still follows me to the bathroom but at least now she'll sit down with some toys and wait for me.

For now, your baby is young and she may grow out of it. How is she doing at night? Does she sleep through the night?
