When does baby start to have preference ? My 11 weeks baby is a friendly baby that will smile and laugh with anyone. And sometimes it is as if she ignored me when i tried to make her smile...although its good that she seems to be sociable but i am just being a lil bit selfish that i want her to want only her mommy (i wonder sometimes if she knows i m her mommy as i dont breastfeed her ..) TIA

When my baby girl was about 6 -8 mths, her preference for mommy kicked in substantially. Very tiring for my wife as she want mommy to carry her exclusively. However, daddy and grandparents can use toys and colourful items to distract her and carry her away from mommy, to let mommy rest.
