What age and How did they react?
Dd is 10 months anddd she lost her **** so bad for 20+ mins so we had to leave.
We got there (it was a rockpool not a huge beach and it was low tide, no waves or anything) and she started shaking, i held her tightly and took her and boys to the shore line. She watched them splash in and she squeeled and looked relatively happy.
I knelt down with her and let her feet touch the wet sand ( wasnt submerged in water ) she started screaming hysterically. So i stood back up and held her tight and reassured her it was ok. She kept crying and crying this really awful scared cry and was trembling. so i took her to our sun tent and sat with her. Then every single little thing would set her off. The wind shook to tent a little cue meltdown, the boys brought a little pail of water up and she was scared of it trying to crawl over my shoulder to get away from it. I sat her on the towel in the tent and she touched a little pile of sand from the boys feet and then got hysterical again... This really awful terrified cry.
Does this sound normal?
