Recently, baby dont't want his daddy to carry him to sleep, will cry non-stop(makes his daddy very sad). He will stop crying immediately after i carry him. My baby is only 3 mths plus, can recognise people and choose who to carry him....
Anyone has the same experience?
There was once i went for facial (around 2 hours) and she was crying all the time. My mum had to take the nursing shawl and put it over my hubby shoulder to 'fake' me but it only pacified her for awhile. she cried till she was tired and fell asleep by the time i came home.
I try to get my hubby to participate more in her daily activities (i'm on ML now whole day with her whilst he's working and only evenings are with her) and tend to leave her with daddy when he's home and would not take over until hubby really tried and can't pacify her (we dont't believe in letting her cry herself hoarse). She has begun to be better with him now, and doesn't mind spending play time in the evening with him alone.
Similarly i am taking care of baby whole day and his daddy only sees him in the evening..
I will get my hubby to wear/ put my t-shirt around him when carry baby. Heart pain to see him cry until like that..
By the way, my baby usually cry around 10.30 - 11pm time, really dont't why.. And thats the time i pump milk, so daddy had to carry him...
For my dear son, he will prefer me to pat him to sleep and nobody else Cos I;m his main caregiver all the time, even at nite. dear son only likes to play with Daddy, whenever, he wanna play, he will prefer his Daddy.
At night, when its his sleeping time, Daddy cant be there cos he wont sleep but kp smiling at Daddy and wanna PLAY!! So, whenever, i tuck dear son to sleep, husband cant be around in the room unless dear son is aslp.
mother in law tried to pat him to sleep at nite before, but he will kp on crying non-stop and dear son will only stop when he saw me cos he need to hold my hand to sleep and sing him lullaby..
me too! Quited my job last Sept and be a stay at home mum! Cos dear son cant sleep well at nites and often woke up in the middle of the nite, if not, will only sleep at around 1 or 2 am eversince I started working.. The next day, really cant concentrate on working. So i quit my job in the end..

Maybe you can observe his behaviour after you start working. if your financial allows, then you can consider to be a stay at home mum??
my issue is not lyk yours though..
M just dont lyk my mother in law.. he would fuss everytime she carry him/ bath him or do ANYTHING TO him.. playing WITH him is ok, as long as there's other people around..
he would fuss and cry EVERYTIME mother in law touches him.. but M's ok with everyone else..
my mum even commented to me saying that "mother in law's body got thorns, that's y M dont lyk her" lol!! my mum never once saw how M fusses with mother in law.. she never even think M will fuss!! zzzzzz
i think its normal.
prob let your son get used to your hubby..
bbphir3 dearie, pin also like that when she was young.
she is ok with almost everyone except my aunt!
my aunt super dote her deee but the moment she SEE her only (from a distance summore) she cry like very ke lians already..
really cry til very jialat... but now ok liaos.
lol!! at least i think it's a good thing that M dont lyk my mother in law.. cuz i can be very sure she will CONFIRM be the one messy up M's routine if she ever touch him!! hahahahahahaha!!!
