need advice about my baby girl

My baby girl is almost 6 months old. Its pretty clear that I'm the only one shell let hold. We were at a 6 year olds birthday party over the weekend, several people tried holding her and all she did was scream and cry. After a few minutes of her screaming and crying they gave her back to me and she was perfectly fine. I'm the only one who she let's hold anymore and it's getting rediculous cuz I need a break once in a while. Also I'll put her in her bouncer or just lay her down she's fine for maybe 10 min then she wants to be held again. How do I break her of both of these? Any advice is much appreciated.

Perfectly normal. Be patient and keep trying for brief periods like you've been doing. She is starting to discover that she's a separate person from you and that can be quite unsettling for a baby/young child. You don't want to break her attachment to you... simply help guide her to learn that it is OK to not be on you 24/7 and that she can be safe w/out you for brief periods.... and you do that the way you have been.
