I have a question for you all and would appreciate some supportive ways to deal with this situation.
My dh is a wonderful husband and father, but we have a 28 mo. old daughter who, for whatever reason, is really into me. As in, she prefers me at least 90% of the time. There is almost no scenario where she will choose her father over me and most of the time we chalk that up to her being a toddler and wanting her mama. Most of the time it's not a big deal.
I am currently ~ 7 mos pregnant and I'm not sure if she's having anxiety about the baby, but she's suddenly adamantly rejecting her father for everything, fro diaper changes, to dinner, to putting her to bed, etc.
I'm sure it's considered normal behavior, especially if she senses that my time with her will be reduced in the near future, but I'm wondering how to support my husband? I know he gets extremely frustrated with her rejections of him (I do too, because it's impossible to do everything for her all the time) and I want to both reinforce to her that he is a good daddy and let her know that sometimes I'm not available, period.
Suggestions or advice? Thanks.
