When my daugter was small she was had bad colic for about the first 6 months. It seems like I was the only one who could calm her. Now that she is 16 months she is really independent but she is still kinda clingy to her mama. My husband gets rather fustrated with this because often times she wants nothing to do with him. So he kinda takes a step back and dosnt really help me out at all. How can I get him to put in more of an effort?

  • I'm in kinda the same boat. I explained to my husband that the reason my daughter doesn't want daddy is because mommy has always met all her needs, and so she doesn't really know him. I told him that putting in an effort with her every now and then would help change that. And it has. She doesn't always run away when he tries to give her a hug now lol.

    Maybe try that?
