Easing baby fears

Infants and babies get scared, just like adults do. Although this fear may appear to be insignificant or even cute, it should be dealt with in a very real way.

Some things that might scare baby are

  • Loud noises, such as the vacuum, music or a honking car.
  • Being startled. Sneaking up on baby is rarely a good idea.
  • Heights. The top of the stairs or even the height from the highchair may scare baby.
  • Bathing. Especially if you're bathing baby in a large bathtub.

Fear in babies is very normal, and luckily with parents' help, babies can overcome them.

  • Comfort your baby and stay close when presented with things that make him or her scared.
  • Slowly introduce baby to the safety of some items he or she fears. For example, let baby see and touch a vacuum cleaner turned off.
  • Set a strong example for dealing with fear.
