17. A baby, it's sticking to you
The scene is a classic. Until then your baby went from arm to arm with his cute smile. Around 8 months, fearful of a stranger, your little ostrich nestles his head in your neck. If he could speak, he would ask you: "Who are these people and what do they want from me?" This crisis is the first manifestation of a long series of advances and regressions. He gradually realizes that his body is separated from his mother and discovers the world. The anxiety he feels is manifested by an "attachment crisis" ... How to help? No question of giving up seeing the world, even if it is a little wild. But no question of skimping on cuddles ... Paradoxically, he needs this fight to learn to get away from you!
