I think we can all agree that no sound on this earth is more distressing to a parent than that of their crying baby.
And in their early years, nothing prompts a meltdown from your little one quite like the sight of you leaving the room. Separation anxiety is so common among babies that you would probably be more likely to worry if your little one didn’t cry a little when you left them alone.
