We have 2.5 y.o. son. For the last 6 mo or so he has been attached to mama at all times. I cannot even use a bathroom without him pounding at the door. He won't accept help from his dad, only mama "read book, feed meal, give bath, play with, etc" This morning as I was getting ready for work, he said that I must play with him and cried bloody murder because I suggested that maybe "dad wants to play with you too". At one point he said, mama don't go to work, dad go to work, and mama and I stay home. I am a working mom, but i do make sure that I am there every morning to make my son pancakes, and I am there every evening to feed him dinner. My husband is with him Mon-Fri and I am with him Sat & Sun due to our work schedules. We're also raising him to speak 2 languages. He understands and speaks full sentences in "mama's language" but refuses to communicate in "papa's language" even though he understands it 100% and hears it more often than "mama's language". When my husband speaks to him in English, he answers him back in "mama's language" (Russian).
Does anyone else have a toddler who is constant attached to mama and ignoring, refusing any attention from dads?
