Why does our 3 yr old get stressed when his twin siblings suck on or put their fingers in their mouths?
(Bendigo vic Australia)
Flynn becomes very stressed when his twin siblings suck or put their fingers in their mouths, he cannot focus on anything until he has pulled their fingers out. The twins are 9 months and we faced this problem about 4 months ago. Our son got over it and it wasn't a problem til now (again).
Breastfeeding was also an issue, however that isn't as bad this time around. He also hears them sucking (thinks he can when there is not sound at all) even when they're not in the room.
Do we ignore this problem? Is there a problem or is this a stage?
