Brooke Shields enjoyed a Sunday afternoon at the park yesterday with daughters Rowan Francis, 3 ½, and Grier Hammond, 11 months, and their nanny. The nanny carries Rowan’s Crocs in their cayman style in pink ($26).

According to the photo agency caption, Grier experienced separation anxiety and had a crying fit when Brooke attempted to leave her with the nanny for a moment to run back to the car – Grier needed her mom! Brooke ended up taking her back to the car with her. BabyCenter says infants can experience separation anxiety as early as 6 months of age, but the ‘crisis age’ for most babies is between 12-18 months of age.

Did your children experience separation anxiety? At what age? How did you deal with it?
