Thank you.

Fear of Brother
by: Pat

I'm glad to hear that someone else is having the same problem as we are. I have never heard of a child that does this. I have a 5 year old grandson that will not go near his 7 month old brother. He will not go near him or touch him. If we put the baby on the floor he goes into a panic. If you try to get him to touch the baby he will cry. We don't know what to do. I'm glad I found this site. Could anyone give us some suggestions on how we can help him.

My son too
by: Angie

My son is now 11yrs old and has a fear of babies too. He doesn't gag but he will hide and avoid them at all costs. He doesn't even like to look at baby pictures of himself. He's not as bad as he used to be but still doesn't get close.
