  • My son does that too. He only wants me to hug, kiss, hold, tuck in...etc etc. I haven't really found out how to fix it yet, but I'm pretty sure it's just a phase he's going through. (At least he's loving on me b/c I don't think I could handle it the other way around!!!)

  • Mine didn't go through this, but I'd reiterate to him that it's okay to love more than just Mommy.

  • My son prefers me offer my husband. I think he's just very attached to you and you are doing the right thing. just keep telling him its okay to love more than one person. It's probably just a phase. I wouldn't force anything on him, he will come out of it on his own time.

  • I do tell him often that its ok to love more than just mommy - and at night I make him say Goodnight and I LOVE YOU to daddy but he trys to fight it.. I tell him this is what we say to family..( at the moment that is lol ) I wonder if he thinks he can only love one person or something... he gets pretty upset..
