My baby is 5.5 month old.. He has started crying if anybody other than me or my hubby tries to speak or hold him.. What to do..pleasd share your experiences  and suggestions.. I tried making him comfortable  with new people, by talking to them, spending  time with him without holding.. But nothing  is working out..

your baby is undergoing stranger anxiety. its fine, let him be, he will outgrow it. don't force him to go to others. you can hold him and introduce to others. if the visitor is staying with you for more days, then baby will warm up to them. kids! my baby goes off with any random person, and i feel worried about that! LOL...

Shubha this is the time when baby started recognise people they feel unsafe or scared with strangers. Give him time make him introduce to others gradually they learn to recognise other family members too. Take him regularly to the gardens n family gatherings let him play him other kids this will surely help.thanks asha chaudhry for the tag☺
