I wouldn't be concerned about that at all. It's pretty normal for baby to want momma. I agree with Laura that each relationship will be different. All of my babies have only ever wanted me. Daddy just won't do. . . but as they get older the relationship changes. It's hard when they are babies, and mom needs a break. . . but it's just a season.

Daddies are great for playing with and having fun, but its a different relationship. At least it always has been in our home. You two are different people and you will always have a different relationship with your child. Neither is better, just different.

Perfectly said.

My DH works close by and basic 9-5 hours, so we don't have those issues. The kids like me better for boo-boos and sadness. Daddy is the fun one. They know I will discipline harder. It will come together for your guys as long as DH can keep a clear head, not let it get to him and keeps playing and making contact.

Mrs/ EMily I hear ya loud and clear on that. my SO works some strange hrs there times were even the week ends I find myself alone with my daughters. my daughter has a tough time with her Dad. Since Im mainly with her as well she always wants me to put her down to sleep for food or any lil discomfort. What I do to when hes with her I let him be the 1 to do everything for her that I would do that way she wont be such a fuss ball. The me leaving for a little bit I think has made a huge difference with them both bc shes having to get use to him(though secretly shes a mommies girl) but I dont tell him that. I just help him out when hes there and try to teach him what works for me and see if he can incorporate it with him.
