Any tips for helping my 9 month old feel at home in our new place?

We will be moving in about a week and I think my little one might have a hard time with it. When we'rehome he's usually very happy, active, and outgoing but as soon as we leave our home he becomes very shy and quiet. I fear that our move might freak him out, help!

  • I just had this issue. After a few days she got used to it (once the house was unpacked and it looked more like our old home. For the first few days I couldn't even set her down! My DD is also 9 months. Set his room up first, so that @ least his room is just like his old room.

  • He'll be fine. We moved when my son was 2. There was no adjustment needed at all. Because we were there, and all of his things were there, he was absolutely fine.

  • His overall behavior sounds totally normal. My 4 year old is the same way, and has been from a young baby. At home she's a HUGE motor mouth from the minute she wakes up to the minute she gives up the fight against sleep at night. BUT, take her out and about and she will say 2 words, at most, to anyone that even looks at her. When she was about the same age as your son, if someone talked to her, she'd find some neutral space, stare into it and ignore EVERYONE, even Mom/Dad who was holding her.
