hmmm i can see that living with your dad may make it harder for her to tell the dif as she has been 'exposed' to their voices equally whilst in the womb and since......it will come, though. She will soon show you that she KNOWS exactly who her daddy is xx
Amelia was around 10 - 12 wks when she began to settle better or daddy - she was always happy to be with him when content, but if tired or uncomfortable only mummy would do - she is now 5 months and i'd say he can settle her as easily as me - most of the time anyway. So it does come x
I thought my LO knew my OH, shes comforted by him, really happy when he comes home from work etc
Until his brother showed up (she was 5-6 weeks) and hes the double of my OH and she was looking and behaving with him the same as she does with my OH, theyre comning up again this weekend, so we'll see if se can tel the difference yet
Wonder if anyone out there who has OH who have an identical twin, wonder if Lo's know the difference? hmmmm, got me thinking now
Laura, im in the same postion as you, i dont think Ava can tell the diffrence between Marc and my dad, My dad sees Ava everyday and can calm her down just aswell as marc,
My mum can calm her down nearly aswell as i can! just from one hold and she stops just like that, Ava knows im Mummy cos Mummy = Food
Niamh knew OHs vice the instant she was born. She stopped crying as soon as he cuddled her as spoke so she could listen to him.
I think it's to do with how often they hear the voice. Not that they think 'Ah, this is my Daddy', but that they recognise the voice as something from the womb and find comfort from it.
I can't remember when Niamh knew for certain OH was her Dad. I think that a baby can be comforted by anyone at first, and I think it's around 3 months they get separation anxiety when separated from parents.
