I'm quite distraught at how much my 6month old loves my mom. I get plenty of smiles, yes. But my mom gets these excited giggles - she goes zooshit. I work 4 and a half days a week and my mom watches her during the day. Do you think her bond with gran is stronger that hers and mine? If so, how will that affect our mother-daughter relationship in the future?
Children are supposed to have bonds with many people. It has only been a short time in history that women have been isolated in houses to raise babies on their own. As children grow they develop different relationship with the people they are around a lot. I was lucky to have both sets of grandparents live in walking distance. My sister and I were the only grandchildren on both sides and our grandparents were very involved in our lives. One of my grandmothers took care of me whenever I was sick and I stayed at her house a lot on weekends. She took me a lot of places with her. Having your mother be very involved in the care of your child can make you and your mother have a stronger bond and bring your relationship to a new level. Focus on how lucky you and your baby are.

I'm the grandma and I take care of my grandson several days a week while my DIL works and my son goes to class. I've been active in my grandson's life since birth and he just had his second birthday. My son usually brings my grandson over alone because he doesn't want my DIL to be upset about how much my grandson likes coming to my house. My grandson's dog comes too and my grandson and the dog start barking and getting excited in the car a mile away. Sometimes my grandson pushes my son out the door, there has never been separation anxiety. Sometimes he doesn't want to leave. If I put him in his car seat he does better. My son is happy my grandson has another person that he loves and that can care for him. Around my DIL I try to avoid behavior that would upset her.
