Re: lo only wants mama
It was the same with my first baby, but DH and Lilah figured out things to do together. She would always calm down if he took her outside. Bouncing and shushing worked too. But sometimes nothing did and he just had to deal with a crying baby. He took all that a lot easier the second time around.
And it's not just because you're nursing. My nephew was formula fed and he only wanted his mama for the first several months. Every time my brother held him my brother would tense up and B would freak out. Once my brother figured out how to be with B, things got much better. And now, B is 3.5 years old and wants Daddy Daddy Daddy all the time.
Lilah 10/08 nursed 25 months
Beatrix 01/11 nursed 30 months
