  • At about 6 months he started crying when people he didn't know would talk to him in that high-pitched baby talk voice. But that only lasted a few weeks and now he'll smile and reach for just about anybody.

  • My daughter hated strangers, which included my MIL, from day one! She is better with most people now (18 months) as long as we ease her into the situation. She also hates it when people schriek at her too. The worst is if someone just comes up to her and tries to pick her up...the war is on!
