    Default Shy sensitive 2 year old...

    I could have written your post word for word. My almost 4 year old DD is exactly the same. From when she was a day old she would not let anyone except me or DH hold her, if anyone else even looked at her she would howl. I couldn't even leave her with my sister who she saw all the time. I used to get so upset that she wouldn't play with the other kids, she used to look so sad just standing there watching and I could tell she wanted to play with them but she was too scared, she used to laugh and run around like she was playing with them but as soon as they got close to her so would run back to me and hide .

    It does get better though! DD has started going to daycare 2 days a week this year (last year she was only going once) and she's improved so much already. After 3 years of daycare she's finally stopped crying when DH leaves her and she actually wants to go now! I've noticed an improvement with how she interacts with other people too.
    I honestly think its something they grow out of as they become more familiar with certain places, situations etc. I try not to push her too much but also let her know that it's ok to play with the other kids and ill be close by watching her incase she needs me. It's a slow process, lol.

    Good luck
