This is my first time posting although I have lurked here a few times in the past. Dd is four months old, ds is three years old. I am having a total crisis of confidence and feel like an inadequate mother. dd responds more to other people (brother, daddy, even grandparents) more consistently than to me. I don't know what I am doing wrong - other than maybe holding her too much (she likes to be facing out so she can see the world) so she doesn't see me often enough. It's also hard to interact with her as much as I'd like and as much as I did with ds (because he also demands lots of attention). But even so - ds reacted to me the same way. I am now clearly ds's primary attachment so if there was a problem with ds we have fixed it . Any thoughts or similar experiences out there?
