What can I do to help my 10 month little girl get along with daddy?

HELP. My ten month little girl dislikes her dad so much she only likes him from a distance. This is driving my husband crazy to the extend that he doubts his feeling for her, and this hurts me a lot I'm not sure if its true or it's just cause his upset but its damaging our relationship a lot I don't know what to do.

Is he living in the same house as her, or around her regularly? Is she scared around strangers in general? Has he been around her since her birth? These can all tie into that. If he is gone for extended periods of time, she might view him as a stranger. That is out of your hands. If he is around regularly and she is acting that way, it could be she is a "Mommy's girl" :) If she ONLY does this with him... I would worry. I'm not trying to slander anyone, but if a child has a distinct dislike for someone deeply involved in their life, there could be something wrong there. Maybe he doesn't spend enough one-on-one time with her. I would step back and take a "big picture" look to see if it is just a phase or if it has been going on longer. Hope this helps!
