  • Yes it's normal. It's called a startle reflex and means that he's growing and healthy. As for your SIL thing, that's normal too. Some kids just don't like people. My daughter is the same way. If she doesn't know you, and sometimes if she does, she WILL NOT talk to you at all. She has an uncle that is just made to be a loving dad/uncle that from day one she has refused to give the time of day to. I also have a couple of nieces that will scream if ANY man even looks at them.
