i absolutely agree with everyone else, it is definitely seperation anxiety. my daughter had it bad, now, she still has it, but it's definitely easier to deal with. once we figured out what it was, we started the whole peak-a-boo thing, and it kinda helped. we just made it a BIG game, not closing the eyes then opening, we'd put her in one room, facing the door, then walk away, and as soon as we heard her start to whine (right before the horrible "i'm being murdered" death screech) we would jump back in the door way and say peak-a-boo. and we'd do it over and over again for about 10 min, each time, we'd be able to stay out of her sight longer and longer. and just so happens, that's how we started cleaning another room, while she stayed with her toys. sometimes we'd throw a little blanket over her head(like the ones they wrap them in at the hospital), and when she'd get it off, we'd say peak-a-boo...after she got used to that, we'd hide on her, and when jumpin out...she'd laugh. this eased her into being without us. and a good reason for her doing this for you, and not wanting to go to daddy, is because YOU'RE ALWAYS THERE! i HAVE TO give her away to someone just to get her used to not being around me, just incase we need a babysitter, we don't want to have her freak the whole time we're out. and don't worry when you hand her off to your husband for him to spend some time with her, just do it a little different. instead of saying, go to daddy and walking away, have him pick her up and stand there with you, then have HIM slowly walk away with her and then once they're out of sight, RUN :o) go and do whatever you have to do (even if it's just to sit and relax!!!) my daughter still has her anxiety when we walk away, but if someone has her and they walk away from us, she could care less! also, sometimes to go into another room, we'll put toys around her and some tv on and she gets so involved with that, that she sometimes doesn't even noticed that we've left her side. early morning is the best time to get everything done (i just put disney chnnl on for her "background" noise, she plays and turns to watch from time to time) find a movie that she likes, or tape (dvd) with nothing but singing (we have sesame street silly songs). once you find what keeps her attention, it will be easier for you to leave the room when it's just the 2 of you. i hope some of my suggestions help you. let me know...and if you have any questions, or would like to talk about any of those ideas...just email me. GOOD LUCK, it WILL get better!
