Need help. I have a soon to be one yr old. She throws alot of tantrums and will not let anyone hold her but me . When her grandparents try to.hold her she pushes them away and fusses or cries for me. She doesnt really pay attention to anyone she always wants to watch little einsteins on tv. She will.come to me to.play when she wants to but she rarely does it for anyone else. She will play by herself. Now for.the first 4 months of her life it was just me and my husband with her...we moved 900 miles to.be with family..lived one place when she was 4-9 months old theb moved in with other family. Im not.sure if.we stressed her out so much that she only wants whats constant in her life..me and her shows. But everyone else is concerned thinking.she.has something wrong.and.that she is a unhappy baby


Please hel

Your welcome crystal as long as she plays and is happy evening if it's just with you she's fine don't worry . I know how you feel about family saying she's unhappy mine done it all the time but I looked over it cause he was happy with me and would play with me so I knew he was fine . She will come around when she's ready it is just going to take time don't worry about what they say cause remember mommy knows what's best .

I think it's normal for her age to only want you. All three of my boys went through this. They didn't want to be with anyone but me. Sometimes, not even daddy.
If you are really concerned you can bring it up at her next pedi appointment. What I did was just keep bringing her around the family and other people and eventually she'll come around. I also just had to leave them when I needed to go out without them. They cried but they got over it. Have whoever watches her (while you go out) have things ready to catch her attention while you're gone.

Thank you chasidy

What you said is very engourgaing..especially for a mom :-) my motherly instinct is telling me there is nothing wrong and it will just take time. But it is very hard as a mother to hear from family that they think ur child is unhappy. But she smiles and plays just not with others...lol..

My son is ten months old and he acts the same way I wouldn't worry to much she's just not use to new people that doesn't mean she's a unhappy baby she's just use to you my son is scared of most of my family when someone else holds him he crys like they are hurting him then I have to get him back and when he plays I have to sit on the floor with him if I don't he comes looking for me lol. Anyway there is nothing wrong with her it's going to take time for her to get use to new people my son just now leting my brother hold him for the first time I was so happy give her time she will get use to them it may take a while but she will out grow it in time .
