Baby is afraid of dad.

From: Katryna

Subject: afraid of dad

Question: My daughter is 8 months old and my boyfriend works from 7 to 5 monday through Friday, my daughter comes to work with me on the weekends. When her father gets home we eat dinner together and the she goes to bed around 7. So she doesn't spend to much time with him. Most of the time she cries when he tries to play with her, but always when she sees me. I feel bad because he's jealous of me.

Is there anything I can do to make my daughter not cry when she see's her dad?
Answer: Dear Katryna;

I suggest adjusting her bedtime so that he can spend more time with her. Then I suggest that this time is spent with both of you at first so that you can encourage her to interact with him. Take your time as she needs time to make the adjustment.

Make sure this time is fun.

Best Wishes!
