    My little boy is 13 month old and he's been going through this phase for about 2 week now where he only wants his daddy, he's not interested in me what so ever, I do work a lot but I spend every second that I'm not at work with him, this is breaking my heart, feel like I'm failing as a mum and that he doesn't love me :(

    He even cried when I picked him up from childminders today and didn't want to come, he's never done that, he was fine once we got home but that's not the point. Now that hubby is home from work he's not interested in me again.

    Has anyone else been through this??

    Thanks xxx

    Aww I'm sorry you're feeling this way. My lo went through a super clingy phase for a couple of months where he didn't want to go to anyone else except me and this includes his dad. My oh found it really hard going and was upset by it. He's come out the other side though and honestly I don't think he favours either of us at the moment. He does love you hun, it's just a phase xx

    Aww honey don't worry to much.
    I know it can be hard to feel rejected by our own child but it's just a phase and soon he'll be all over you and ignoring daddy instead!
    Sometimes they also go through a phase where they LOVE their teacher/nanny/child minder.
    It's not a reflection on your worth as a mother. At this age they are still developing their personalities and preferences and phases like this one don't last.
    Try not to pressure him too much, he'll be super excited to see you and hug you in no time!
