my 2 year old son is done with mom, can't get enough of dad

i'm so happy that my son and husband have a great relationship, but recently my son is totally uninterested in me, and only wants to be with his Dad. Is this a phase? Does it pass?

  • Yes it's a phase and He'll want Mommy again. but enjoy it while it lasts.

  • It just means that is so comfortable with your relationship with him that he can check into dad now. It's hard the first time around, enjoy those little moments to yourself. You'll always be mommy.

  • It's just a phase, he'll "balance out" more after awhile. Then, he'll go through it again when he's about middle school yrs. I know it's hard, because this is your baby boy, but it's a normal (and good for him developmentally) thing. Just hang in there, be there for him, and don't make a big deal out of it around him or anything :-)

  • Absolutely a phase. "favorites" cycle occasionally with young kids and then balance out. You'll also find, through-out the years, that you and DH will end up with "job" assignments. ;) Even though I can play ball with DS just fine, he still views that as "Daddy's" job, while, no matter what DH tries, my job apparently is to help him study and do his homework. ;) that's DS's task assignments for us. ;)
