Baby screaming at dad

Hi, My 5 month old recently started thing new routine of screaming bloody murder if her dad tries to put her to bed. It’s awful- worse scream than when she got her vaccines. I know it’s most likely a phase and babies go through many phases of having a preferred parent, but what do we do in the mean time?? Do I just ride it out and do bedtime every night until this passes? Ugh 😩

That sounds awful. Did Dad get a haircut or shave his beard lately? Maybe try bedtime together for a bit? Or make sure she gets time with Dad during the day?

We went through the SAME thing! It’s so incredibly hard. I would take over a lot but then give him back to dad. We would switch back and forth that way for awhile until that phase finally passed but it was weeks of that!
