Is she starting to teethe? I had the same issue with my neighbors infant. She would only do it with me. After a few weeks I realized that she had started teething, not so much teeth cutting through but just the lack of comfort of the pressure. I would soak clean wash clothes and place them in a ziplock to freeze. once they froze I would give them to her and she would instantly place them in her mouth! It solved the issue very quickly. After a while I started getting large carrots and freezing them as well.. she loved the carrots. She could hold it and suck on it at the same time!... if she dropped it, i would simply rinse it off and it would stay frozen for quite a bit! Hope this helped Good luck!
