Hi Louise, I have 4 daughters my youngest is also 5 months, she is a brilliant baby so happy and content, but my 20month old was a different story, like your baby she would never let me put her down, she would never go to anyone else not even her dad and she slept in our bed with us until she was 9 months old just so we could get a nights sleep. The worse thing was when she was 3 weeks old she wouldnt stop crying and i got really stressed so i just laid her down during that time she became more stressed and worked up she stopped breathing, luckily I got to her in time and phoned an ambulance, and I gave her mouth to mouth until the ambulance came. at the hospital they told me she became so worked up her airways became blocked with mucus. She made a total recovery. As soon as she started walking at 9 months she completly changed she has been the complete opposit since.
Try not to get too stressed yourself it will get easier, the more stressed you get the baby will pick up on it. Good luckxxx
