Babies take emotional cues from their parents, especially mothers. If you get stressed or upset, your baby WILL pick up on that. Your partner probably has a lower level of anxiety than you do at present which is why your daughter will settle with him but not so much with you. I had the exact same issue with my son when he was very young. Nothing I did would make him stop crying. He would only stop once his daddy was cuddling him. So try not to stress too much about it, you feed her, change her and comfort her when she needs it. She is obviously very much loved by you :) She's just stressing because you are. The crying will lessen over time as she becomes more aware of herself now being a separate being from mummy. Good luck! xx

The shirt thing works WONDERS! My baby girl is just over 2 months, and she is a BIG Daddy's girl. Since he works all the time, she wants him more and more... so I wrap her in whatever shirt he wore the day before and she loves it. If you wear on of his shirts, she will have the comfort of you and the sent of him It will help her get use to you and cry less =]

It could be possible.. when he is not there try wrapping her in his shirt or something and see if that helps with the crying.. and try to stay calm.. when you stress she can sense it and it stresses her out too and that makes her scream even more
