    Default rejected by baby after returning to work

    I've just returned to work part time and now when I'm home, my 18month old DD who has always been a mummys girl, now prefers to go to anyone else. Heartbreaking! Has anyone else experienced this rejection? What did you do and how long did it last?

    Ive never been in your position sorry but I would imagine going back to work can be such a huge transition for families. Maybe Its just a phase while she's getting used to the change You poor thing though I would be really upset too

    Not going to work sorry but when I had my second child my 14 month old previous mumma's boy "rejected" me for a while. It was very hurtful. I made sure I spent as much special one on one moments as I could manage and he came round after a bit. He's my mumma's boy again now

    Default rejected by baby after returning to work

    This happened to me when dh was off work for a month at Christmas.
    My then 8mo mummy's boy started wanting dh and not me. Whenever dh came into the room I was pushed away. It did hurt heaps but I just make every moment we were together without dh super fun..
    Made him laugh and played toys and he came back to loving me more haha

    So maybe just pay extra special attention to your bub whenever they r near. Like if they walk into the room your in make a big song and dance about it like your so excited to see them.. Worked for us
