    Default Scared 3.5 month old

    My son is 3.5 months and lately seems to scare easily. High pitched noises (even other babies crying), funny faces, some strangers all seem to set him off. It's not even an instant reaction, he'll go still and quiet then out comes the bottom lip and crying

    Its so awful playing with him and the wrong noise upsetting him.

    Is this normal? Is it a stage he'll get over?

    My DD use to be like this at that age. She has gotten over it, i think its just a phase thing, there still getting use to being in the big wide world. They spent nine months in a warm dark place, so they need time to adjust.
