My baby is 3 weeks old, and is very attached to me . He gets fussy with his father . Does anyone have any suggestions to help? It seems he is only happy or not crying when he is in my arms ! Daddy is getting sad :(

I agree with what the other User said... You could also try putting something with your scent on it, helps to keep baby calm, Also if you are nursing that makes it a little tricky.. As daddy isn't getting that bonding time.. Have daddy lay one of your shirts on top of his or wrap baby in one of your shirts like it was a blanket... It helps.. Have done it with 2 of are 3... Hope this is helpful... Best wishes and take care...

When your baby is sleeping place your baby on your husbands chest while he is laying down so your baby can hear your husbands heartbeat. Have your husband stroke the babies back (only do if ur little guy is in a deep sleep) you dont want to wake him. This is common, your little guy has been inside you for 9 months and hes used to your voice and your body. Another idea lay down on ur bed together and but him in between the both of you and both of you talk to him and rub his hands and his head gently. When daddy is alone with the baby tell him to sing to him in a quiet voice or to gently rub his bottom. If all else fails contact me I have a no fail and I mean no fail song but its kind of made up and I would not be able to explain how to sing it on here without embarrassing the heck out of myself. But when I say no fail I mean every baby in our family has been soothed by it and its basically has 6 words in it lol. Now that I have humiliated myself lol good luck and keep me posted on how it goes, DONT forget contact me if you need the song lol. I can email it to you! ellen0115@aol.com
