So, to add to my stress this week...
My DD has been having serious separation anxiety with me. This morning, I was getting ready for work and the baby woke up. I was still in the bathroom and my DH got her, she was crying all the time. As soon as I got out, I went and took her from him and she instantly quit crying.
My DH kept telling her that she hurt his feelings and told me she is being that way because I'm breastfeeding and she's too attached to me (and then he said that's what his mom told him...) and that she'll quit doing that when I don't nurse her anymore. This made me feel terrible.
I want my DD to hang out with her daddy as much as she does with me... He's been always supportive about breastfeeding at least thru the year, but I think he really has his feelings hurt for our baby not wanting to be with him much and cry for me all the time.
Has anyone else been thru a similar situation? I am not sure how to manage it. I just told him to try to play more with her... I know separation anxiety is normal for this age (~9mo) but I don't know if it is worse with the mother when nursing, is it?
Thanks to all of you who have replied to my posts and for your encouragement and support! I love this forum!
