  • Yes yes yes give her attention, I think she want's to be cuddled and loved by you bcuz she feels that your boyfriend is taking all your attention, I would just tell your boyfriend that she is your doughter and that she will get all the attention she needs and wants, she is way more important then any boyfriend. I think he is being very selfish by telling you not to cuddle her and hold her.

  • That's exactly what you should tell him. loving your child is a good thing. now when she is fine then sees you giving attention to the BF or someone else and she does this, yes she is being controlling of your relationships with others. I know it may sound odd that a child would do that, but kids can be very jealous.

  • Just make her feel that she comes before your boyfriend.
