Has anyone else NOT been their bubs favourite person?
DS is 5 months and leaves me feeling pretty rejected a lot of the time
Daddy and grandma get smiles and laughs at the drop of a hat, but I can spend hours being silly and playing with him, and I'm lucky if I get a giggle!

Any other rejected mums out there?

Not the favourite?

My little monkey went through that phase. He was always excited to see his dad but because I was with him all day the novelty clearly wore off! I'm sure you'll be the 'fave' again soon!

I went through a patch of that with DD2 around the same age. She was a total Daddy's girl. It only lasted a little while, and now I am the firm favourite again hehe
ETA: sometimes not being the favourite has definite advantages though...

Oh yes. My son tells me he wants Daddy all the time. I say, "I love you", and he says, "I don't love you, I only love Daddy". I'm not offended though. His father and I are no longer together and it's quite normal for children to want the other parent. Plus Daddy is fun and rarely disciplines him. Mummy is mean and has rules and a strict bed time routine.

Good to know, I'm spending so much time saying mama mama mama trying to cement that first word milestone as my victory ha

Yep DD went through a phase where I could barely get a smile but DF got giggles easily. But I am current fav & DDs first word was 'mum'!

I am definitely not my kids favourity. Maybe because I am the one that actual says no to them. It has advantages for me though when I don't want to get up to them at night...they either call dad or go to dad's side of the bed

I am not DS's favourite at all apart from when he hurts himself or is sick and then he wants me. Daddy is the fun man, mummy is the one that says no, tells him to clean up and generally does most of the discipline. DD is predominately a mummies girl although some weekend mornings when DH is home she favors him. It used to really upset me about DS but I've learnt to get past it, I love him dearly but he pushes the boundaries and I have to deal with it.
