I know nothing with babies is an exact time frame, but at what age do they start really preferring Mom to anyone else? Claire's always been good with being passed around to other people, but the past few weeks she's only wanted me to hold her. She doesn't know enough yet to actually reach out her arms for me, but if I'm standing near where anyone else is holding her she leans and fights to get to where I am. I'll admit, it's cute. I like that she loves me of course, and for the most part I don't mind it, but she's now starting to turn away from my OH and only want me during the evenings, when that is my time away from her. She'll cry and fuss and be angry until I take her from him and then she calms down and is all smiles. I don't want her to shun everyone else away, and I (personally) don't think it's healthy for her to only want me, no one else. Not sure how to proceed with this? I do love holding her, and it's not something I don't want to do, I just need a break from her at times too... you know?
