My baby is shy
Avery had terrible stranger anxiety from the time she was 2 months old! I felt like a bad mom. like it was my fault because I stay home with her or because I chose to breastfeed. I wanted my baby to smile and be cute for all of our friends, but she was too terrified.
Finally I just let it go. I learned to let her warm up to situations and the best way to distract her from her fears. Now that she's moving around on her own she's a lot more adventurous. She's still nervous around strangers but warms up pretty quickly. I think it just takes time.
