My baby does not love me!

I feel that my 7 weeks old baby does not love me. When he cries I cannot calm him at all. The only thing that sooth him is breastfeeding. When I try to hold him, he only tries to reach my breast. I feel that he calms much better with my mother. He loves his grandma more than me. I feel so guilty about it. In the first days after delivery, he was mostly with my mother, and I only fed him. Could it be the reason? Or it is normal? Have you had the same problem? Will he love me later? I am worried that the attachment does not happen and he has problem in his life.

You must be a first time mom.Honey your child loves you and sometimes grandparents can sooth them better we have had more practice.Just keep holding your baby rocking him,read to him etc and pretty soon it will all come natural and you'll forget you even felt this way.
