Does my baby hate me?

My 12 month old went on his first over-night visitation on Friday. He was all happy to see his dad and every I took him away from his dad; he would cry. It was the same way when he got home today; I took the baby from his dad and he started crying then also cried when his dad left.

I guess, I missed him more than he missed me. He slept for three hours on me and woke up all happy. I know he's just a baby and doesn't understand that my feelings are sum what hurt. I just figured, that at least he would be a little bit happy to see me and he wasn't.

oh honey, being a parent is not a popularity contest.

Be glad he is home safe and that he feels safe and loved just as much with his dad as he does with you.

This is more than likely a transitional thing, which will settle with time.

Just be aware, he will also be getting your vibes, so if your stressed and anxious every time he comes home, he will feel that and freak out a little. Try and learn ways to relax for his return.
This is going to be his life for a long time to come, the sooner you get used to it, the sooner he will adjust to it and things will settle down,
