Your baby clearly recognizes you now! During the second half of the first year you see attachment behaviors that show how very important YOU are to your baby. Your baby begins to realize that he or she is an independent little person. This is quite scary! It is normal for babies to have stranger anxiety and separation anxiety at this age. Your job is to be a secure base from which your child can explore the world – knowing that he or she can return to you when things get too scary.
