A couple of times we have been out now, D will suddenly break out in a cry when she sees people she doesnt know, especially when they try to play with her. I dont really give people the chance to get very close to her ( im personally to OCD about germs and people not washing there hands ) but in the few times that she has had close encounters... she has bursted out with full on tears and takes a while to calm down.

Anyone one else have a LO not liking to see a lot of strange faces?

Adelyn has been around a lot of people from day one so we don't have that problem where she cries with new faces. However, she does whine when she see's me or her Daddy since she prefers being with us but she won't break down in tears. We just tend to get out of her line of vision so other people can enjoy some time with her.

Marcos doesn't mind being around strangers. However, he's very picky about being held a certain way (he really hates being cradled). So whenever people hold him, I have to tell them where to place their hands and arms or else he will throw a fit.

He seems mostly ok, but other people can't hold him for too long anymore, he just wants me.

Absolutely. I think it is less her not liking strangers and more that people are morons and don't think about how overwhelming it is to a baby to have a stranger get in their face and invade their personal space. There are people who actually know how to act around a baby that she is totally fine with.

Side note - it is totally normal for them to be more clingy and wary of being away from their comfort person at this age as they realize they are a separate person rather than an extension of you.

Thanks so much Claire for my awesome siggy

I agree with Jessifer. Mila doesn't mind new people but they need to know how to hold her the way she likes or she'll fuss and cry. It's a huge issue with my parents because they never just listen to me when I try to explain how to keep her content. They think I'm nagging and they keep thinking their way is going to work. It's a never-ending loop of them doing it wrong, her crying, me nagging, and them undermining me.
