I don’t think my baby likes me at the moment

I’m really poorly with an infection at the moment so my MIL has been looking after DD while DH is at work.

Since being ill, when DD is home she has no interest in me at all. Normally she is so smiley and cuddly with me, looking around for me etc etc. Now when DH leaves the room she screams when she’s left with me. It’s breaking my heart

It makes it worse because i’m going back to work next week and I feel really worried now. I’m hopeful that she just thinks I’m boring because I can’t do a lot with her.

Am I being really silly? She was so excited when MIL picked her up this morning 😞

Aww Sorry you’re feeling so poorly.. hope you are much better soon .
Of course your baby loves you.. she’s just got a different routine at the moment due to circumstances.
Of course she’s excited to see MIL .. going out is fun !!!!
Be kind to yourself today and rest
You can play with her when you feel better 😀
Good luck with going back to work.

Thanks @babbi for your kind reply! You’re probably right! It’s much more exciting at MILs especially when I’m boring at the moment.

I think being ill is making me a bit paranoid! 🙈

Maybe you smell different? Odd, I know, but I could always smell when my dc had an infection. Perhaps she’s the same with you and the unfamiliarity is unsettling her?

@Howmanysleepsnow no I think you could be right. I suppose as well I’m not following my normal routine so won’t smell the same and my breath smells vile 🙈
