Re: HELP! Talk me off the ledge...

It has nothing to do with ebfing him, just like everyone else said. It is frustrating though.

Thanks for the support mamas! I really didn't think it has anything to do with ebf but since he's my only one that hasn't had bottles DH is convinced it is. Oh well. I don't mind a bottle here and there and the times he has gotten one he's taken it just fine. He seems to be taking to people better the last couple days.

DS2 is almost 21 months old, and while he's still strongly attached to me, he's getting a lot better at letting other people hold/play with him!
Exact same here. He is who he is.

You are not alone! My daughter was the same way until she was a year or so. Now my son who is 6 months is the same way. I do think that it goes with the territory.
