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??

This is the stage where many bubs go through separation anxiety from mum and/or stranger anxiety. It does get better eventually, just reassure her alot.

My 7mo DD is doing the same thing. I think it is just seperation anxiety. MIL, who has had 5 kids told me all babies go through it.
DD crawls to wherever I am now too, for example if I go into the kitchen she follows me lol. Cute but makes it hard to get anything done

10 month old DD is similar. All smiles for strangers at the shops, but starts crying when someone she knows gets close. It's mainly with male family members, but doesn't happen every time.
