  • probably the mommy bond.. my daughter does it too.
    alot of kids will .
    my son did it and grew out of it a couple months after he was born . i still was the only one that could calm him but he at least didnt cry anymore at his dad .

  • Make daddy the primary feeder during the evenings. Once he's home, baby is his, eventually baby will grow out of the fussing.

  • I have the same schedule every day when DF gets out of work its daddy and baby time til the last feeding before bed (i nurse). But with dinner he gets a bottle and fruit and daddy feeds him everynight and gets him ready for bed.

  • Our 6 week old is like that too. Daddy gets frustrated way more easily than I do, and I think she can pick up on that. Usually as soon as I try with her she settles down. Not always though!

  • Max used to do something similar to this but I think it was more that David would get frustrated and I was trying to give him time to adjust. Man did I create a monster! He started just giving him to me if he cried so he always had happy fun baby and I always had grumpy tired unhappy baby. Fixed that one real quick!!
