    Yes, my daughter prefers me by a LOOOONG way. Until recently she didn't really like her dad at all. She now loves daddy, but still all about mum most of the time.

    My son is very 50/50. prefers dad for a lot of things, but mum for others. He knows I'm the one to come to if he actually needs anything, but dad is usually more fun

    Mummy's boy and mummy's girl. Maybe will change as time goes on. DD is only 5 months and won't settle for anyone else but me DS is 2, was totally mummy's boy till DD was born, had to spend more time with DH, still prefers me though.

    DD1 is definitely a mummas girl
    DD2 fluctuates but is more of a daddy's girl
    DD3 is 3 months old so she's a mummy fan so far (exclusively bf so that always helps)

    DS is a daddy's boy but then he is a copy of his Dad. He's usually a mummy's boy when he isn't feeling well or having a bad sleep.

    This is what I'm really worried about, now that I'm a single mum. Hasn't happened yet thank god, but both being boys I can see it heading that way as they get older.

    So far, whilst DS1 loves seeing his Dad, he definitely prefers me when sick/sad. He often asks for me & DS2 when at Dads too (which I secretly love )
