Feeling sad and stupid!

Me and my DP have a 15 month old son, he has always been all for mummy, exclusively breastfed, still breastfeeding now. We have always shared baby duties, dad does bath, story and then me nursing him to sleep. Up until tonight, little man has never accepted dad to sooth him when he wakes, never let him put him down to sleep, he has also never slept through the night, we co sleep and he wakes multiple times, always had to be me to sooth/nurse back to sleep. Well tonight he cried when dad left him to go to sleep, was genuinely upset like he wanted dad not me, so dad went to his first night waking and the first time ever had soothed him back to sleep....I should be elated, but I'm not, selfishly gutted. It's rudiculously stupid but I terrified of being rejected by my boy in favour of daddy. We are currently TTC so it should be a blessing that he is more accommodating of daddy but I feel crap! Think I just needed to rant, I don't want DP to know how I feel as he's been rejected for 15 months and it's his time to shine for sure.
Silly lady I am 😕

But Hinksey how happy your husband must feel about the progression in the development in his relationship your son. I would take it as a sign from your son and art shared bedtimes/settling sessions

I know, he is so happy and I love seeing him elated that he can finally settle his own child. It's bitter sweet, like I said, just being very silly!
