default Is it just me but are bf babies more clingy

Post by mcdiarmid356 on Fri Oct 24, 2008 2:20 pm

DD is ebf, well introducing solids slowely. She is 17 weeks and so clingy its scary. Seems i can only settle her, and is so a mummys girl and wants constant attention from mum and no one else. Its that bad that daddy cant console her, i have to take her everywhere.

Ds was bottle fed and the complete opposite, is this a bf thing or just differences between boys and girls?

I have 3 boys - eldest 2 bottle fed, youngest EBF, and my eldest two were more clingy to me than Corey is!

It depends on the child i think - but BF obviously will draw a baby to its mother - baby knows where its next meal is coming from!

Bethany has always been like this and although i used to moan a bit when she was young and i couldnt even go to the toilet without her screaming for me, in a way i love it. It makes me feel special and wanted much more than anyone else could ever make me feel - is that a bit said and pathetic?! Rolling Eyes Laughing

In a way it is nice that she is like this and knowing that only me can console her and feed her, but sometimes i just want to scream and wish i can turn my back for 2 min and get peace.

I also think that my hubby uses my :boob: as an excuse to do bugger all and play on his xbox 360 when home from work and sleep all night without getting up to see to the baby Mad

Brody was like this in the very early days but I find now he is a bit older he is so independant it's scary! I left him with my sister for 4 hours today (which is the longest I've been away from him in 20 months!!) and he didn't even notice I wasn't there! Laughing

I have 2 very independant girls. Cally does want mummy but this is at times when she is tired or not feeling well. Any other time she is very sociable and loves meeting new people. Seren is a very sociable toddler who is not shy around new people. So going on my experience alone I would say no (despite being told 10000000 x that co-sleeping, slinging and booby feeding on demand will create a rod for my back)
