  • because she is startled and doesn't understand what it is. my daughter isnot scared of the vaccume cleaner, but my sons were. i think it's just a personal thing. you could reassure her and comfort her

  • My son was too, I think its normal for this age for lots of kids, just reminder her its ok and introduce as many types of noises as you can..my son is 2-1/2 and is much less afraid than he used to be..!!

  • At 11 months she is still getting used to noises after all she hasnt been exposed to them for very long...my son was afraid of the hand dryers in bathrooms at the mall when he was about her age and he would cry when I used them, he's almost 2 now and he doesn't mid them though...it just takes some getting used to....

  • Not exactly why she is like that my daughter will be 10 months on the 20th and she is like that... i don't know if they are more used to it being quiet and the loudness throws them off... good luck on finding an answer...
