Infants can exhibit stranger anxiety as early as 3 months old, so your child is not too young to be showing these signs. Between 3 to 6 months of age, infants develop an awareness of strangers and may experience anxiety in their presence. This is completely normal and is not a sign that you will have an anxious child. Reassure your infant in a soft voice or touch when he is around strangers and make sure he is aware of your presence. A child will usually outgrow stranger anxiety completely by the age of 2 or 3.
