The few times I have left my husband alone with my month old daughter, she has cried hysterically. I leave him breast milk to give her and she calms down when he's feeding her, but then pipes up again once she's done. What can we do to make her more comfortable with him while I am away? He gets so discouraged and feels like a failure as a father. I try to tell him it's because I am with her all day and the source of all her food and comfort when he's at work. I'm afraid day care will be a nightmare if we can't get her more calm. Any input would be much appreciated.Answer Question

When hes at home he needs to hold her and talk to her often! And you are right especially if you breastfeed her shes uest to you! When you breastfeed you and the baby have a closer bond any way! When hes home he really needs to get involved even if she cries! She is only a month old and will grow a bond with daddy to! Just keep encouraging him and she will get uset to her daddy!! Good luck honey it will work out!!
