RP'ing in hopes someone has some advice...
Out of the blue DS suddenly seems to hate DH! DS is be fine when he's around, will smile and laugh when he's making faces, will coo and reach out at him - but the second DH picks him up he starts crying inconsolably, until he's back with me. When DH gives him a bottle at bedtime, DS has been kicking and screaming and refusing to take it. When he's with me though, everything is normal.
This was cute for the first day (I was like, "haha, I'm an awesome mom - he likes me better!") but it's been like 3 or 4 days of this now, and I'm getting exhausted! DH can't help with anything, and we're both getting really frustrated. (And poor DH - he can't understand why DS seems to dislike him so much right now )
What do I do? Has anyone else gone through this? Do I just need to wait it out? This is terrible
*This evening was terrible! We tried to have DH put him to bed, so he took him upstairs with a bottle, and I went into the basement to work out - as far away as I could get from them. Well, DS cried for a solid hour that he was with DH - DH brought him downstairs finally to tell me he was getting really frustrated, DS saw me and started smiling and laughing. This is bad!
Re: Help! DS hates DH! :( (RP from this morning)
That sounds so frustrating. Is he wearing any cologne or anything that DS might not like the smell of? Maybe he could put on your perfume or something that smells like you and see if that works?
BTW...I am basing this off of an episode of Scrubs. Very scientific.
This, Totally! I just didn't want to say anything
Try having DH hold one of your shirts up against him (in between him and the baby). Maybe that would work???
