Dad looking for advice...
Our daughter Christina is 13 months old.
She's a great wee girl. Very happy and cheerful nearly all of the time. We couldn't wish for a better child. She's even been sleeping all through the night since she was 2 weeks old...!
The problem is she's unbelievably clingy to her Mum. I work full time and my Wife has been on indefinite maternity leave since Christina was born so she's with Mum a lot more than me which obviously means she has a much stronger bond with her Mum.
When all 3 of us are in a room she's fine but when Mum leaves the room she goes ballistic even though her Dad is still there. I try to tell her everything is OK but she still seems to panic.
Even when we're all together and I try to give her a cuddle she struggles to get back to her Mum. (she's been crawling for 3 months and is just about ready to start walking).
I took 2 weeks off off work for Christmas and we spent ALL of that time together as a family. We thought this would make Christina less clingy as I was there all of the time, but it didn't really make much difference.
All of this is pretty hurtful for me as I obviously love my wee girl as much as her Mum does but she only seems to want her Mum.
I was wondering if any other Dads, (or Mums) have had a similar experience, and if so, any advice would be most welcome...
