Does anyone else have a 6-7 month old who cries when they see strangers or relatives they don't see everyday?

Makenzie had alligator tears and kept saying mama mama mama when Grandma held her the other day, then got worse when some strangers (to her) came to see what was wrong. Cried also when my friend held her and she couldn't see me and at her 6 month appointment when we laid her down so her Dr. could check on her.

  • Stranger anxiety is a developmental phase all babies go through. It usually peaks between about 6-10 months.

  • Just don't remember my other 2 girls starting it at this age. Just surprising she did it with Grandma who she sees once or twice a week. Just wants her mama! :-)
