My 9mo DD freaks out when people come in to our house. It doesn't happen all the time, but sometimes she gets really worked up. DH and I went out on Saturday night and his sisters came to babysit. As soon as they walked in DD lost it and we couldn't leave until we got her off to sleep.
She still cries when we drop her off at daycare (started when she was 7mo) but settles pretty quickly once we leave the room.
Most of the time when we're out and about she'll smile at strangers who look at her but if someone she knows comes up to her she starts to cry! She's fine if I'm holding her but will cry if she's in the pram. She's fine at Playgroup though - weird!
Are these freak-outs normal?? Does she do it with people she knows because she thinks I'm going to leave her with them??
