Is your baby a little girl? Is she about 2-3 years old? If yes, then this is a normal phase it should pass in the next year. For some reason adult men are often scary to little girls. To not push her to go to anyone she doesn't want to, let her come back to you when she is scared and wait for it to pass.

babies always prefer to be iwth mom or dad (or main caregiver) in the first yr, they go through stranger anxiety and separation anxiety. these can last a long time. I am of the belief that it's not natural to go to strangers (even family whom your kid does not see often) so you should never force them to do so.

when they get older, they will love these people, but just respect that they need mom and dad most right now.
