You know the terms 'daddy's girl' or 'mummy's boy' etc
Whats it like in your family?
Ds#1 prefers me over dh... Always been happier and calmer with women compared to men
Ds#2 is a boys boy and prefers my dh and my dad over me and my mum.
And DD is very much a mummy's girl... She will not settle at all for dh or my dad or any male that holds her

Does your child prefer one parent over the other?

I am most definitely ds's 'favourite'. Dh finds it incredibly upsetting and finds it hard not to take it personally. It is better now than we he was tiny, but only marginally.

Yep, DD prefers her Dad, but I can understand why - he's the fun one she only sees every second weekend. I'm the boring one who does all the awful things like take her to school, pay the bills and make her eat vegetables.

My DD1 is a mummy's girl.
DS just loves his dad. He loves helping his dad, playing in his truck etc. but when it's bedtime or he is hurt or upset, he only wants me.
DD2 is only 3 months old but fully bf so she wants me

DD (nearly 8) is very open about loving Dad the best. Big family joke (but it does horrify lots of people on hearing it). I'm always trying to get her to say she loves me the best.
But in saying that, when she is hurt, needs something or is just after a cuddle, I am her first port of call.

Well DD doesn't have much of a choice... it's me, her father who she hasn't seen in about 5 years or DP. I win by default I think. lol.
Who am I kidding though, I would have won anyway. She was always much more into being with me than with her father as a little one.
There are times when she prefers DP though. He's usually more fun and less grumpy at her when she's misbehaving. lol. So it's often, "I want to hold his hand, not yours," when we're out and about.
I always preferred my mother. I still do.
