When do babies know their dads??


I know i read on the prengancy calenders that by a certain week babies will recognise their daddys voice and then respond to it outside the womb..

How can this be true?? I mean i still live at home.. so im with my dad 24/7 ( more than oh ) and my brother quite alot. How does Maisie know the difference between my dad and her actual dad?

Does she know that Matts her dad yet or not?

Porbably..Ryan knows his daddy's daddy.

He gives him big gummy grins and is happy to sit with him when upset or unsettled whereas a stranger or someone who's not the parents will not be able to settle or calm him"

Maybe it has something to do with recognizing the voice?? I'm not sure. I know that Maxson knows who his daddy is though.

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.
