Congratulations! By when are you planning for a baby?
Congratulations! How many weeks are you?
I have a
3 years old baby
Hi Sunita. It is common for babies at this age to feel scared. Is baby with you all day? Is baby exposed to strangers eg in a playgroup. There is no fixed time when children will be ok. Please take it one step at a time. Gradually show baby its ok to talk to strangers. Be with your baby abd gradually increase interaction either family gathering, social interaction, neighbours etc. The key is to be patient and not force the child.

its normal dear. many kids do it. as d tym passes he ll stop gtng scared... my niece stoped at age of 5 years. sum get over it soon as sum take tym
He is supposed to join playgroup in June. I do take him everyday to play out . hope he comes out of this soon. As its quite embarrassing and depressing to see my child behave like this. And people around always ready to taunt or increase ur pain
you can take your son to your relatives or friends n even a mall.any public places. there will be lots of new faces. . once or twice baby gets scared after that he will used to be. one more thing whenever you take him at such places give him comfort n security that you are with him ...
hi sunita - pls dont worry - like all the other moms have mentioned the more u take ur son out the more social he will get. every child is different - so pls dont worry what others say! lots of kids take time to adjust. my child was super social as a toddler - was perfect the first day at playschool because i was there. second day whn i went to drop her she started kicking up a huge fuss - it took me weeks to settle her in :( my friend's son was unsocial but didnt trouble her for playschool. so pls dont worry - kids behave in mysterious ways but sooner or later they all settle down well. mark my words. good luck! #TagFwd Prisha Lalwani Manveen Dua Priya Ghosh
most of the babies does the same... don't worry, it will go on its own as he will grow.
Sunita Agarwal Give him time. he may not progress at the rate you want him to, but he will. keep him close to you if he is having adult anxiety. once he sees you trust the person in question, he will too.
Thank you everyone for ur advice
yes my child has crowd phobia . it's ok if they don't wanna interact . he also dislikes too many kids at one time. they settle after sometime though. So don't worry . with age they learn .
even my daughter is 2 yrs old and i have the same problem. she will not got to anyone and cries a lot when she sees strangers. hope she will settle after a while. mee too really worried.
