I'm hoping for some reassurance here. My son turned 17months a few days ago. For approximately the past 2 weeks he has become very very clingy to me, old fears have also re-emerged (e.g. the sound of the vacuum cleaner), and he is requesting to nurse almost constantly throughout the day unless he is very distracted. It was only 3 weeks ago when I was commenting to my husband about how independent he was becoming. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and whether it is (hopefully) a phase?
