It is odd, and I know how my friend feels as well as one time when my daughter was about 19 months old, she fell off the slide in my backyard. I ran over to comfort her, but she ran over to my friend. The same friend whose daughter is wanting me at the moment.
Maybe you can use that example if you do decide to talk to her about it. I think that you can't take responsibility for your friends feelings, only your own reaction to her daughter. As much as it might sting to have your child show preference for someone else, I think that ultimately the benefits of her little girls having a close bond with a trusted friend outweigh the negatives. And because you are sensitive to your friends feelings, you aren't going to rub her nose in it.
I would just get it all out in the open.
