My boy is just over 1yo. He likes me way more than his mom, excited to see me, upset when I leave, clings more to me when sick or hurt, even knows what to call me but doesn't say mama. Anyone similar?

Mine are 2 and 4. It ebbs and flows. Mostly, talk about it. It might bug her or she might realize it’s a phase

Yeah same. My boy still co-sleeps since he rolls around a lot so we need to transition him to his own room in the next few months or we'll be in trouble when number 2 shows up

Hoping my wife isn't too upset by it, and I'm wondering whether it's just a phase...

Phase. Give mom room to do what she needs to develop some depth like you have

Phase. From around 9 months to almost 2 years, my son was very much a daddy’s boy. Around 2, it flipped 180 degrees and now he’s almost 4 and very much a mommy’s boy. It is harder on the women though, so make sure you downplay this phase to her (you can still love it on the inside) and let her know it will shift. Also, make sure she knows you love her unconditionally. Some women start to doubt this fact at times, especially when the emotions of their babies favoring others comes into play

Glad to hear it's a phase. Hoping things are different once we put him in school/daycare soon. Also have another one on the way so the emotional rollercoaster is just around the corner

^ my experience was that kid #2 cemented me to my oldest (she’d been in a long mommy phase). We probably fostered that subconsciously because it was often more convenient to pair off - mom and baby, me and toddler - during feeding etc. We’ve hav various magnitudes if that for the last 2 years, but #3 otw is who knows what’s next

Phase.. for a short time my daughter at 2 would not come to me at all.

BCG1, any tips to manage to kids? I’m going to have a 2nd one by the end of the year

Manager OP, I’ve been in transition mode for 3 months with my daughter 😿🙀
