Q.

Teething dilema

My baby is teething and she never ever eats she lives on the youghurst and grapes, she is so violent and it scares me because i took her to 3 doctors and still the problem never goes away.

She is moody towards me I give her all the best and when i get home from work to kiss her she calls me by my nickname and calls her dad mum,
I am sad and maybe she can see and wants nothing to do with me, she cries and slaps me when i read to her but when father does she tries to immitate.now with teething she only wants dad who is now called mum.

I do teach her to say mama and she says Ah Ah which means no and when i sad dad she doesnt respond, is she normal?

when i get heltp from people i am being laughed at.

is there something wrong with me or her.

You say your child is a baby but she is talking, so how old is she? She seems to be angry about being left in the care of someone other than you all day. It is important to speak firmly to her when she slaps you, just say 'Stop doing that!', nothing else. Do not get angry with her no matter how cross she makes you. Keep calm and give her lots of hugs and love.Never hit her as she will learn nothing from this except that it is OK to hit back.
