My three month old daughter screams bloody murder when daddy holds her only daddy. When I have her she calms right down. Is this normal?

  • my son has always preferred mama. he's 7 months old now and is beginning to enjoy daddy time. but anytime he's upset or tired, only mama will do.

  • it normal. at first.
    just have your husband spend time with her or feed her
    they need to bond. ask your husband to help change the diaper or put her to sleep when she need nap.

    My baby 8 month now and love to see her dad. He traveling for work and he back on thurs and she love to see him. There is glow in her eyes and big smile when she see her dad. She has for me too big not too much..
    my daughter only call for me when she is trouble or when she is awake or need food.

  • I would get a couple of books about Daddy being special. There are some. Then you can read them together. That helps. My son went through a big phase and that helped. We also would do "exciting" things during the day that we wanted to show Daddy when he got home.
