Daddy is my daughter's favourite. She is a real daddy's girl!! I don't sweat it. Honestly, it's just because he's not the one home with her all the time. It's not a competition.

And I will let you know one thing.....I am the one she ALWAYS asks for when she is sick, or upset, because mine are the cuddles she needs then. So really, it all pans out. They love us both equally, they just need different things from us at different times.

Stop trying so hard. It's fairly normal for Daddy to be the favorite.... especially if the child/children in question don't spend as much time w/ him. Don't worry. He knows who his Mommy is and loves you for you.

Favorites change all the time so I would relax and enjoy that you have a break because when you're the favorite you really don't have anytime to yourself.

My daughter is 16 months old and she's a momma's girl, when she's awake I can forget about getting anything done. An

I think you should just relax and don't take it personally. I have three children two of whom just think Daddy is more fun than me. I have one child who wants Daddy far more for hugs and if we are both home any problem or banged elbow runs to Daddy for hugs and reassurance.
It's not a competition, sorry if that isn't helpful but it's just my experience.
