Hi, The very first thing , confirm whether your relative is giving 'Gutka' to your baby also ? What kind of Gutka he is taking ?
Baby may get addiction if he has got the taste of it and started taking it orally. Addiction with smell is difficult to comment on. Possibility of a normal preference and attraction with the person where your baby is feeling more confortable, more affection or some interesting action which your relative might be having and your baby is enjoying it. I suggest you just keep a close watch. Take care

Thanks sir for ur reply and detailed explanations, he is not giving any gutka to my baby sure, I know that. Plz suggest what behaviourial problem my baby can show if he is really addicted or I can notice the danger signals. Thanks in advance
Hi, It seems to be a simple preference for the personality of that person and what I explained before that he might be getting some interesting act from that person.
If the person is close relative and you are having full confidence on him then not to worry else you can try to avoid the contact with him slowly. Keep in mind sudden separation or forceful separation may increase the problem. Also when that person is not there, Give your baby more attention and engage him in some good act which he enjoys and laughs on it.
Its a slow process and may take a while but if everything else is normal with your baby like feeding , sleeping etc , then don't worry. Take care.
