    I would just not worry tbh.

    In the years to come, she'll hate school, her name and you. You won't stop educating her, change her name or relocate her though... because these are just phases and she will settle down and get over it.

    You sound like you are writing about my DD! She was EXACTLY the same as you've described.

    I have to disagree with Sassy on this one. It was no phase for my DD and it was no phase for me either. I never liked babies at all. Still don't. Have never experienced "cluckiness" or thought any baby was cute at all. And my mum was really worried about this when she discovered she was preggers with my little bro. But luckily, i DID make an exception for my little brother. He was adorable. And my own two babies are even more adorable!
    DD dotes on DS. She is a very caring and enthusiastic big sister now. But she still doesn't like other babies.

    Your DD may never like babies. But she will very likely be fine with a sibling. Keep ttc'ing, and while you are pregnant, lay it on thick to her about all the awesome stuff about babies. Dont try to tell her how she will feel, rather focus on how the baby will feel about her. "Your new baby will think you are such a clever big girl and you can teach him/her how to..."
    Etc.

    My ds was a wanted baby and photos of HIM make me clucky but as a general rule other peoples babies just makr me go gross he's slobbering on me or pew he she stinks or ew baby just vomited on me :/ .

    I like when they get a bit od personality but even then could take or leave them, i just dont really like other peoples babies lol
