This sounds stupid to feel bad about but my daughter looks more like my husband, and I feel so insecure about it. Especially because his family is so quick to point it out and I feel like they rub it in my face all the time. My family has said she looks like me when I was a baby but I can’t help but feel sad about it when I hear it so often. I don’t know. Has anyone else felt this way?
she will grow out of it most likely
Your in-laws will probably always think your daughter resembles their side of the family, no matter what. My in-laws are the same way. Children are constantly growing. I think you’ll find that your daughter has features of both you and your husband.
they are bonding, not excluding you – but they aren’t very thoughtful or sensitive. Hope your husband or daughter didn’t inherit that part, lol. How a person looks changes a lot as they grow, until they end up looking like themselves and not like anybody else. Give it time.
P.S. to above comment… I’ve heard that all babies look most like the father, as a sort of evolutionary thing: so the father recognizes the baby is his and will take care of it.
Thank you to the moms who gave me good advice I appreciate it 🙂
