Super Glue Syndrome

Ryan is going through his `Super Glue Syndrome' phase now and believe me, it is a nightmare for us.

We used to be able to get the maid to feed him, play with him, entertain him and bath him even when we are around. But lately, he has grown SO VERY ATTACHED to us (especially my wife) especially when we are around in the house.

Whenever when we are around, he would just refused to go with the maid and throw a big tantrum if we `forcibly' push him to the maid if we have to get certain things done in the house. He is so sticky that he would not want to maid to feed him, bathe him or play with him. He just want US! I can't even take a bath without him tagging along into the bathroom.

Going to work in the morning is a nightmare because he would be wailing and yelling his head off and not wanting us to go to work. So, I have been trying to leave for work even before he wakes up in the morning to avoid having to see him crying pitifully, wanting to follow.

I wonder when this phase will end because it is extremely tiring going through this `super glue syndrome' with him. Any advice?

Bro, i always believe that this is the most wonderful thing (super glue syndrome) could happen to any parent.. guess what like the rest said, this syndrome will fade and suddenly we begin to long for the super glue again,,,

to tell you the truth,i still tug my children to sleep even now (13 and 9 respectively) for i truly enjoy this feeling, and i used to joke with them and ask them this " sons, can you still hold papa's hand when you sleep when you have girl friend and wife already" and guess what their reply always warms me up,,," sure papa, you are my papa ma.

so bro,enjoy every minute of it,that's why i dont believe surrendering the care of my children to maid,(may be i cant afford a maid" and that's a good thing ahahahahahahahah

Oh it just a phrase, hopefully can pass very soon. BTW some old folk said kid behave that becoz they sense their mom if pregnant again. So is your wife expecting? haha

HI Bro Eugene. Understand where you are coming from and totally agreed to it too. Just that sometimes, he became so extra sticky that can't even go to the toilet without him tagging along..hahaha..

And Vicky, she is not, at least not yet....haha. But she wanted another baby girl very much....

If Ryan is "super glue" then Sarah is "extremely super glue"...

I think it is a growing phase and Ryan will be fine.
