    Its a phase! My DD just went through the same thing. Its getting better now. I think making a big deal of it makes them worse. We tried to just ignore it although it was gutting for DH. Shes now getting heaps better & asks for him all the time.

    Just a phase Soon it will flip and she'll be doing the same thing to you.

    Don't stress about it.

    Thanks everyone for your replies. We're just gonna go with it and see how she goes. I feel so much more at ease now. They're only babes for such a short time, I think i'll just get all the cuddles I can now before she doesn't want to cuddle me anymore

    Ohhh I could have written this post word for word about a month ago.. Dd is the same age (2 years 8 months) and wow she was so horrible to her dad for all of this year. It was really getting him down and he started feeling really rejected! I could not, for the life of me, work it out! Then all of a sudden, she sees him and tells him "I love you daddy" and will kiss and cuddle him, want him to play and its just like a 100% turn around. I don't know what changed!! She's definitely still a mummy's girl but finally daddy is not feeling so left out!! Hope this helps

    I sure hope my ds does this soon, having to do everything for him is wearing me down and upsetting his dad.

    I know how you feel Kirby. I have a dinner to go to tonight and need to leave before DD is in bed, I'm not looking forward to the meltdown she'll have when she realises she's getting left with DP!

    my DD is the opposite lol she loves her daddy will only go to sleep for her dad and just really wants him all the time. I am fine with it because I wanted a daddy's girl and hopefully will get my mommy's boy soon He is a really good father and just loves her to pieces I hope she stays this way if she ever rejects him he will be heart broken.
