She does not go to my husband nor other relatives either.

  • Here's the good news. She's completely normal. This is the age of separation anxiety.

    This may help, even though it's written for a younger baby.

  • My first was so much like that! It really took a toll on me, especially since she didn't even like daddy for a long time. But she grew out of it, and is now really independant, it's almost scary. Anyway, why don't you bring your baby in the shower with you with a few toys? For me, it was a lifesaver. She was used to the routien of sitting and playing while I showered, and learned not to be afraid of the water at the same time. In addition, I got a nice long shower, with completely shaven legs! Then I didn't have to bathe her later either. It worked out great.
