my son cries out loud on strangers, they get embarrassed n leaves immediately.  he even cries for some time after they leave. it becomes difficult to calm him.

hi dear, please mention your baby's age

hi usually it happens when the baby begins to discover his or her surroundings and it's of course it's hard at first. so just make sure u keep giving ur baby small outings every now and then. and when the baby starts crying try to keep the baby with u and give ur baby some time to familiarize with the person. take it slow. try it for few minutes then stop. then do it next day. so on and so forth. maybe this helps.

hi anon. he will overcome stranger anxiety one person at a time. ensure the person plays with his toys in a non intrusive manner or introduces a new toy (it can be baby's toy he hasnt seen in a while!). be patient and calm! pls be there for tomo's session!
