As the title says I feel as though my DD (13 mths) prefers her dad to me. I don't have a problem as such and think its great they have a good bond but I feel a little hurt sometimes.
If I am holding her she will reach out for him and if I take her off him for a cuddle she can sometimes cry. If she's upset at night and crying its him she wants and if she wakes up crying and I pick her up she cries more and tries to climb out of my arms if she knows he is there.
Is this normal? I wanted a girl so she would have a great bond with her dad like I did but shouldn't she want me for comfort more as I am her mum?! I work three days a week and DP works FT. We go for walks as a family, he does bathtime and bedtime and I do most of her feeds. On days I don't work I always try and do stuff with her so we're not just stuck at home all day.
