My daughter is going to be 3 in july, she has always been a momm's girl, but it seems to be getting worse. I was home with her for the the 1 year, and she has been in daycare ever since. She is fine at daycare, but when we are home, she only wants me to do things with her. Granted I do most things with her on a daily basis, but when I ask her to do something with her father, she refuses. Some examples that are starting to concern me are, if she is taking a nap, and wakes up when I am not home, she won't let Daddy take her out of the crib, she just cries and repeats my name, she has stayed in there 15 or 20 min until I get home. The other day I ran out to the store, and left her with dad, she cried and yelled my name at the door. even last night, she wouldn't let daddy change the TV channel for her. When I ask her why, she just says, I want you. Not only does she want me to take her to bed, but she won't even say goodnight to my husband. I explain to her, that I can't be there all the time, but I will always come back. That Daddy loves her very much and will take care of her, if I am not there.
I am staring to worry why she has such strong feelings about this. Has anyone experienced this or had children want mommy only, all the time? I am looking for any suggestions, cause it is breaking my husbands heart, and making me concerned as to why?
