My 2 month old screams when i hold him but, immediately calms down once my wife, or anyone else, takes him. i keep reading that it isn't that he hates me but, i cannot help but think he dislikes me. nothing i do works, and it is killing me. i feel he associates me with crying. he never makes eye contact with me and if he does he screams immediately. what is wrong with me.

My daughter who is 8 months old prefers her mother and grand parents over me. she cries the moment i carry her and reaches out for my wife or in laws. she cries when i try to change her diapers or clothes or try to feed her. it makes things worse when my in laws hear her screaming with me, they react as if i'm doing something to my daughter and ask me accusing questions. it's so hurtful to see my daughter prefer others over me. i try playing with her and to make her laugh but she doesn't respond. it always kills me to see her face light up at the sight of my wife and in-laws but not when she sees me. i'm on the verge of just giving up and just not bothering anymore.

All i know is, do not give up. i feel my son wants everyone else but me. i cannot imagine how you feel but never give up!

I have a two month old daughter who won't let me hold her without her freaking out. i can barely help my wife, and it's making me extremely depressed to the point that i may have to go talk to someone. please help. thanks.

I feel like my six-week-old baby hates me and doesn't want to be around me. she's always smiling and cooing with her mom, but when it comes to me she doesn't do any of those things. she cries most with me. help me. i don't know what to do.

My 1 week old cousin whom i just recently met has a serious problem with me. anyone else who touches her, she's fine. she loves even my brother who hates kids! she really despises me and cries frantically when i hold her. i tried calming myself down before holding her but i have this constant fear she's going to wail about in hate. her mother just says i need to spend more time with her but i don't think i can. if i won't be able to stop fearing the worst.

Hang in there. keep it positive with her. don't try to force yourself on her or force her to you. perhaps when your wife is playing with her she should bring you into the activiry as well as a way of reinforcing the positive aspect of your connection to both your wife and your daughter.

My daughter is 18 months old now. she won't let me hold her nor sit with me like she used to. it's been about a week now all of a sudden. what do you do? do you force knowing that she not in danger or let or come to me? it's heart renching when she pulls away. :(

Although i'm not yet a dad, but soon to be. i know how difficult the situation is, if i'm on your situation, i may try different approach, like dennis mentioned you can try humming nursery rhymes, or maybe try wearing colorful clothes, anything that will be different. there's really no explanation why this happens however, it's really true that baby does not yet have a preference. so, i would suggest for you to keep on trying and hang in there, sooner or later this problem will just go away. :-) andy

Paige, your frustration is pretty powerful. raised 4 myself and each one different but one gave me similar problems. the necessary part is to ensure that you and mom are communicating well. i know this is stressful on you both but you're in it together. as far as you and the baby - i found that with all of them music was effective. either humming or singing or a cd of baby songs written for that purpose. hang in there mate dennis
