  • No idea, but my daughter is terrified of anyone in a hat (including her father!) as well as men with beards (but a mustache is ok)

  • probably cause so many sunglasses are huge and very very black or reflective of thinigs around people.

    try giving her different kinds of sunglasses to play with or even just around her to toddle past and adjust too.

  • She knows that that is not what a person's face is supposed to look like. Just comfort her and I liked the idea about letting her play with some big sunglasses to get used to it.

    My usually warm and outgoing 15 month old WOULD NOT warm up to her grandfather when he visited for 4 days. Who can say why? Sometimes little kids just get scared of weird things :)

  • haha no but thats actually kinda cute...people like that do look scary sometimes. My son (12 mos.) is afraid of any toys that move and make sound. He got this really cute toy train for his birthday and he is terrified of it. Yet he doesn't mind the vacuum cleaner. Go figure!

  • Aww. I know how you feel, my daughter is scared of men with any kind of facial hair. Except my brother but she has seen him everyday of her life and adores him. At first I thought it was just my uncle she was scared of because to be honest, he looks like a crazy mountain man, but anytime she sees a man with facial hair she freaks out.
