my one year old doesn't like my boyfriend

Jessica - posted on 07/26/2015 ( 3 moms have responded )




Hello, i need some advice. My one year old daughter is very clingy with. I've been seeing my boyfriend for 3 months. When we started seeing each other my daughter was fine. She would go with him, loved to be carried by him but now, this past month and a half she will not go to him. She cries every time she sees him, Vries when he reaches for her, but will interact with him if she is in my arms. What do I do?

I wouldn't say your 1yo doesn't like your BF, she's 1! She wants to spend time with you and like Dove said, they can get quite clingy at this age. Don't force her to go to him, let her go on her own.

My first question, has he EVER been left alone with him?

I agree with Michelle and Dove on all counts. Especially not introducing your BF to your child until they are ready and it is a very serious relationship. Kids can get attached to people very easily, then they break up. It is a hard thing for little ones to go through.

For now, if you are really interested in this guy, leave it at dating....without your daughter.
