Re: Separation Anxiety
This is just a phase. And why not just sneak out, if it's easier on everyone? They play with baby, turn around for a sec, and you leave. If baby starts noticing that you are gone, then you can change your game plan.
And short good-byes are easier than long ones - stay out of sight, but listen carefully for his cries. They should stop as soon as he gets distracted.
A goodbye routine is also helpful - talk about it in the car, say goodbye, give him a kiss, maybe a short nursing session in the car before you take him inside?
The eating thing will get better, or at least it should. He's at an age where he's also very distractible, they may need to find a quieter, calmer, darker place to feed him for a while, until he gets a little older. This also happens to mothers, too, they start noticing about this age that baby doesn't want to eat, and once they remove some distractions, it's a lot better.
