  • I would just try ignoring it for a while - of course make sure that your 13 mo old is not hitting or biting; maybe the 3 yo is just doing it for attention. Have you tried asking the 3 year old why he is terrified?

  • I would love to know the trick to it my daughter is going to be 8 months old and she don't like my dad or her dads uncle who is staying with us. She screams like crazy. They walk away and she is fine. I did notice tho my dad gave he a sucker and he was aloud to hold her. Maybe have him try giving her something she likes. Othe than that i'm just as lost as you.
