My OH at his parents, until Friday discussing some things... I'm home alone with our LO who is 6 and a half month... When my OH is home, shes the most content baby you could ever meet... but when he's gone, so is the content side of her. She doesn't settle for me, right now, she is absolutely shattered but she wont nap and is screaming as I type this, fighting to get away from me, but if I put her down, she screams more, yet, if he came home, said hi and left, she would go straight to sleep. He's been gone 3 days now, and already I can feel the strain of having a constantly unhappy baby. I don't know what to do, we need her to start settling for me, makes me feels like she hates me because she just screams. It's really upsetting me and I feel like I'm failing to be her mother. I just don't understand, I'm the one that's done EVERYTHING since day one, yet she still prefers her dad. Sorry about the long thread, its just how I'm feeling and I feel totally alone, my OH cant come back as we dont have transport and theres a lot of things that need sorting, plus we agreed for him to be gone this long.
