We are having a really hard time with Mr.MM and Paige bonding. What kills me is that it seems as though EBFing is reason why.
During the day Paige will nurse and sleep and isn't too fussy anymore. But once Mr.MM gets home she just wants to nurse. She will nurse for 10 minutes and fall asleep on me. I usually pass her off to Mr.MM so they can bond but she instantly wakes up fussy and wants to pacify on my boobs again. We've tried giving her a pacifier but she refuses and will throw herself backwards if we put it near her mouth.
So even when Mr.MM is home, I'm stuck taking care of Paige. The only thing she will let him do is change her diaper, which he does without too much complaint. I can tell he's getting irritated and a little jealous. Half of me says to throw in the towel with BFing just so he can feed her and get that time. Or start introducing the BM bottle but I don't want to do that this early. AHH. So frustrating.
So for those EBFing, How does daddy get that bonding time and how does LO react to it?
