we are having trouble with several things. I'm fairly certain we are going through stranger and seperation anxiety. so to help her through this i allow her to interact with the individual from the safety of my arms. the other thing, and i'm not sure if it's connected, is we will not go in the playpen anymore. I don't use it often except when I'm running to the backroom (which is not safe for her), or i'm working at the stove and i don't want to be tripping over her or have something hot hit her. I use it only when daddy is not home but i do need to use it periodidcally. When i do put her in the playpen she instantly starts crying, hitting the side of the play pen, she works herself up so fast that she starts to hiccup in under a min! I don't know what to do. Family tells me i need to ignore her and teach her to go in it, no matter what she does (the harden the heart atitude). that just feels so wrong. what do you other parents think?
