    Actually, from experience this isn't good.
    My mom was 2 sick to raise me when she had me so I lived with my grandma, by the age of 6 I was really attached to my grandma, thinking she was my mom and my grandpa was my dad. I still always saw my mom but I still spent more time with my grandma than my mom.

    She always bought me all the nice things my mom couldn't buy me, and gave me all the toys I wanted, I was pretty spoiled.

    Luckily my mom said enough is enough and took me and kept her away from my grandma until I realized I was her son. If she didn't do this, I don't know what I would have been like.
    I'm glad she did, shes a very good mom.

    THe longer this keeps up, the worse it will get.
    Your daughter won't just wake up one day and realize your her mom, it doesn't work like that.
    She knows your the real mom, but that doesn't matter, you need to let her know that your her parent, and the nanny is just a friend.
    Not to be negative but im' speaking from experience, if the nanny is constantly around, you'll always just be the other mom.

    Still to this day I still think of my grandpa as my father figure, not my step dad even though my step dad has been with me since I was 6 years old and I never knew my real dad.

    As harsh as this sounds, you should probably get rid of the nanny and you should take the mom role, if you don't, your kid might not grow out of it.
