Hiya hun, welcome to
My daughter is 9 months and all she says ALL DAY is daddy/ dad dad etc but she can say mummy and nannan.
Shes definitly a daddys girl and hes always been her favourite. it is a bit upsetting but i know she loves me too.
Some days she doesnt smile at me at all but as soon as daddy gets home she doesnt stop!
I think it always the way tho, Daddy's girls and mummy's boys
Its not your fault hun, its just the way it is im afraid! chin up xxx

katie i wouldnt say that... andrew is such a daddys boy!! he can scream all day for me and then as soon as daddy gets home hes good as gold!!
its strange because as jealous as i am of his bond with daddy i kinda love it too, its so cute when he goes aronud saying dadadada all the time and when he yells DADDEEEEEEEEEEEEEE for oh its cute but sometimes i just wish he wanted mummy
try playing with her down at her level that always cheers andrew up! have a day full of fun stuff (to hell with the hosuework!) and just have a day dedicated to her, park, walk, playing etc she will love it and at the end you will feel so close to her!!

You are worrying unnecessarily. There is nothing to worry, with the growing age she will start calling you too. Kids may be more charmed with dad or mom. Start spending more time in playing with her.

I assumed my little boy would be a 'mummy's boy' but no! He just adores his Dad. Everything is about Daddy. It has improved slightly lately but I keep hoping that this baby might favour me!
I think I always felt worse because every other baby/child I know is sooooo clingy with their mum. My guy has never been.
I do try to make 20 mins or so every day where I totally focus on him with no distractions or housework etc. This was Baby Whisperer advice (especially with a working mum but works for stay at home mum too).
