Post subject: Separation Anxiety
This will probably be the opposite to most other posts on this subject but my little boy is 11 months now and he's just started nursary. Everyone kept telling me it was a hard age to start and he would probably stuggled to settle in. Well he's been fine. He loves all the other babies which is great but he barely notices when i leave him. does this suggest that perhaps he's not very attached to me. Dont get me wrong im thrilled that he loves it and is doing so well just a little worried on what it may mean about our relationship!

Absolutely nothing hun. I really wouldnt fret, he is obviously a very content baby. Some children just adapt better to certain situations and its by no means a reflection on your relationship with him.
Tbh you are better off having a child that will adapt than one that screams the place down everytime you drop them off. I also bet that if your little-un was to have bump or a scrape or was poorly the first person he would want is his mummy.
Like I said dont worry and enjoy the time you have to yourself when hes at nursery.
Annoy me and I will sit on you.... and it will hurt!

i'd not worry either, mine is 10 months old and people keep saying he should have his clingy stage by now, well he has not and im pleased as he can still stay at his nan & grandads and im not worried he's crying for me. i really don't think he misses me until he see's me again and then i get big cuddles til he spots his toys! i'd rather him be like this and he seems to be a very happy baby never cries unless he hurts himself, (never used to be like that though!)

Isaac is 10 months and a bit, and he's not clingy either. He's as good as gold with my friend who sits for him sometimes, or with nana. He's even happy with bath and bed done by nana, which is great If anything, I always think its because he's totally sucre in mine and his dad's love for him, so he KNOWS without a shadow of a doubt, that we'll be back
