To think my 3 month old is fucking with me?

Just a few things really that make me think she's not the helpless baby she makes out...

The whole sleeping through from 10pm til 8am, has a bottle and back to sleep til 11 when it's her dads turn for night feeds.

Yet doesn't settle til around midnight and wakes twice before 6 for a bottle and an hours play for me.

Cries due to teething for hours and is just unhappy yet lights up and acts the angel when her dad comes home or anyone else appears tbh.

Acts like I'm murdering her when it's bath time but giggles and smiles when her dad does it.

I'm also sure she smirks at me like she knows she's playing me.

The worst thing though is she looks like him. I gave birth to his head on a baby. I grew her and she looks like him. I feel conned grin

It's slightly lighthearted...

Do your babies fuck with you?

At that age, no, they didn't.

Yep. DD is 2.5 and will be a nightmare at night on my night - Thursday as I have Fridays off work. On Friday night (DHs night) she is a perfect angel hmm

Of course her latest thing is waking at midnight and staying awake when I have a long commute and day at work the next day. Shes usually fine at the weekend.

Mine are the opposite. They only do their grossest poos when I hand them to their daddy. Clever boys grin

She's letting you know who's the boss.

Think of it as your on the job training. Once you are her minion, she will turn her iron will on your husband and he won't know what hit him grin

haha, yep mine did that. Her dad thought she was an angel, she wasn't with me lol still like it now 5 years later

cookieswirls Wed 11-Jan-17 11:23:44

She can probably sense you are more stressed out by caring for her all day and night on top of everything else and Dh may be more calm maybe. That was the case with me anyway

My ds2 is amazing for me but totally fucks with my mum. The other ds is a git for me but an angel for her. Won one lost one 😂

trebleclef101 Wed 11-Jan-17 11:27:35

My 18mo DD shouts Daddy when I get home from work or arrive to collect her nursery angry

Also sleeps till 9.00 on DH's days off but is up at 7.00 on mine. I swear she just doesn't want me to sleep.

Catsick36 Wed 11-Jan-17 11:30:16

Lol mine was like that until I went back to work, then they Really got to know each other. Babies pick up on tiredness stress and anxiety so easily.

Whatsername17 Wed 11-Jan-17 11:31:06

Yep. The lovely thing is that just when daddy thinks he's on to a good thing, they switch their allegiance! grin

seven201 Wed 11-Jan-17 11:31:48

Mine sometimes does this. I remember at about 3 months feeling really shit that she preferred him over me! To be fair I was so sleep deprived around them that I wasn't the best at playing with her etc. Whereas he had missed her so was all keen to throw her in the air and just being more fun. Now though (nearly 7 months) I'm usually her favourite.

My 5month old knows when I've just changed bedding and always does a small vomit on it.

Within half an hour of me sticking a nappy wash on will reliably does the biggest poo possible.

I'll offer him a feed several times before I need to leave the house. He will wriggle and refuse the breast. The minute we are out he demand a feed and cries like I starve him.

My DH often comes home late. Those days he goes down like a dream. The days Daddy is home to witness me putting him to bed, he howls like a banshee and tries to imply I torture him.

He's bloody cute though, so I forgive him! grin

EdmundCleverClogs Wed 11-Jan-17 11:33:39

Mine barely poos when his dad is around. When he goes out to work, he turns into a little shitting machine angry. I'm also the one who gets bitten, hair pulled and deliberately drooled on. On the other hand, he only wants to sleep on me at the moment, so I get all the baby/toddler snuggles. Well worth it!

EdmundCleverClogs Wed 11-Jan-17 11:36:28

Oh, he doesn't share food with his dad either- only I get the honour of half chewed carrot shoved in my mouth.

ProudBadMum Wed 11-Jan-17 11:36:29

Oh yes she is also incapable of shitting when her dad is around. He goes to bed as he starts work in the early hours and she explodes grin

Questioningeverything Wed 11-Jan-17 11:37:34

Just give it two months. Interactive little crazy kid now. Two months ago I felt jealous when others got his attention. Now he grins at others but it's me his kisses are for.

Getnakedorgohome Wed 11-Jan-17 11:39:47

Mine did at 4 months. She would fight naps, scream and cry until 4.10, when daddy walked in and she would coo and smile at him. He'd pick her up and she'd fall asleep.

She's still a daddy's girl at 4.5 but at least people believe me now grin

anyname123 Wed 11-Jan-17 11:43:11

My 3 month old obviously got the same memo as yours. She won't nap for me AT ALL, as soon as we have visitors or go visiting she naps. She'll fuck about taking g 3 Oz of milk off me, every bloody few hours, she'll drink 7 or 8 with other people, she out foxes me at each and every turn.

StarlingMurderation Wed 11-Jan-17 11:45:56

DS mainly prefers me, but always settles best for Daddy in the middle of the night. Yesterday when I picked him up from nursery, he shouted for Daddy all the way home, tried to get into the study where Daddy sometimes works and finally settled down when I called Daddy at work so he could have a quick chat. Naughty monkey!

Olympiathequeen Wed 11-Jan-17 11:52:27

Dad should do more then grin

Glitterkitten24 Wed 11-Jan-17 11:56:00

Yep! 'My 9 month old is a wee demon- a shouting,crying, fussing, flailing little monster. I can't put him down for 5 minutes. My house hasn't been clean for 9 months.

When we are out and he's in the buggy/ at toddler groups, all I get is 'oh isn't he so settled?'
Erm...No!!!!

ExitPursuedBySpartacus Wed 11-Jan-17 11:58:05

I knew this would be you as soon as I saw the title!

Yep - get him to do more.

drink more rum

RogueStar01 Wed 11-Jan-17 11:59:03

my dd2 waits all day to poo at home, just before bedtime or alternatively first thing in the morning. Why can't she do that at nursery? Little monkey.

I read somewhere that babies and small kids express most of their negative emotions with their primary carer as they feel safest with them. I told this to the baby group when mine were small and was deafened by the laughing.
