Infant refusing to nurse

I'm feeling terrible at the moment. My husband is a stay-at-home dad, which is awesome. He works part time and had to go into work today. I don't work on Fridays so I had the girls alone. Well, my 2 month old happily nursed until Daddy got home. Now she wants nothing to do with me. She's only happy when he's feeding her a bottle.

I feel like the Nanny/Maid and not Mom.

Unfortunately, that happens sometimes. I would just keep trying to nurse her. Maybe at night when she is tired lie on your side on the bed and see if she will nurse this way. If she does give it up you'll have to find something else to use and bond with her. I think you are feeling the way a lot of dads feel. As she ages she will find more things that are fun to do with mom.
