According to books I've read some babies become afraid of strangers at around 6 months of age. Well this happened for Maya at around 2 1/2 months (strangers being anyone other than her parents). It became impossible for anyone other than Greg or I to hold or mind her and I know this was hard on family who would have loved to cuddle her.
Happily, over the last couple of weeks Maya has become more comfortable with strangers and people are now able to hold her for short periods of time. I am hoping this will continue to improve and other people will be able to hold or mind her for extended periods of time.
Especially the mind her *hint hint*
