Do babies get separation anxiety?

How do you prevent it?


Answer by  AKMGabriel (241)

Yes, and it can't be prevented unless you never seperate during those developmental stages. It usually becomes most pronounced for the first time around age six months.

Socialization with other children and other adults is the best way to prevent separation anxiety in a child. If they spend too much time with one person, when that person leaves, they feel fear. So my advice is to get that child out into the world everyday in every way!

It is normal for babies to have separation anxiety. It helps to start by leaving for very short periods (even into another room). Also explain to baby what is happening.


Answer by  diva25 (4016)

Yes they do. As far as I know there is no way to prevent is because they don't understand that even when something is gone it still exists. Until they learn that concept there is really nothing you can do. I guess as long as you always return over time they may learn that you will always come back.

Yes babies get separation anxiety. You will know if your baby is experiencing this if he or she cries everytime you try to leave.
