My 18 mo toddler is extremely clingy, has been like this for almost 3-4 months. It's hard for me to get anything done around the house when he is awake. He plays with his toys by himself as long as I sit near him. The moment I step in to the kitchen, all hell breaks lose. He'll keep pushing my leg or just hold it tight and when I try to take a step, he ends up falling on the hardwood floor and hurts himself. I try to hold him but i worry when I'm near the stove. I tried wearing him on my back, but he doesn't like staying there. I feel so inept when I can't get anything done. I see other moms who have such clean homes, cook nutritious food for their family and find time to pursue their hobbies and here I am, unable to even have a shower regularly. I can't even sit at the table and eat a decent meal. Any tips by BTDT moms? Please tell me this phase won't last for long.
ETA: He doesn't watch TV, I've tried it.
