A: First I applaud Dad for being so hands on with the baby and being so sensitive to his wife's concerns.
Kids naturally prefer the adult who spends the most time with them and makes them feel safe and secure. Is there something that your wife is doing that perhaps you are doing differently that the baby prefers? Try spending time as a threesome and let you wife spend time with your daughter when she isn't scared or tired so they enjoy there time together. Remember parenting is a marathon not a sprint and your daughter is blessed to have three caring adults.
