Just spend lots of time with her...she will, it just takes babies different amounts of time to bond to each individual. Try kangaroo care...I did that with my daughter when she was tiny and loved it...she did as well. If you are not familiar with it, it is where you dress your baby down to nothing but a diaper and place them against your bare chest. Then you can stroke their back, sing to them, massage,ectm I really think its great for bonding...they use this in a lot of neonatal icu's in hospitals because it is so good for babies and bonding. Hope it helps!
