What is your baby afraid of?

Mine:

mylar balloons
Gloworm
dogs
Tekno Robotic Dog
weird looking Happy Meal toys
mommy sneezing
a stuffed bear that plays music (Fuzzbucket, Catherine loves it though)

Oddly enough, Lilly isn't afraid of the dust buster. Go figure.

    Coughing. Sneezing is fine though. :laughing7:

    Nothing yet - he's a completely fearless child and will approach anything and anyone. He laughs at pretty much every new noise he hears.

    He sounds like my son when he was a baby.

    She's not a baby anymore but...

    The car wash--ever since she was a baby and aware of what was going on she has HATED the car wash. Once she even recognized where we were going even before we pulled into the driveway of the car wash (I think she was about a year old--we were shocked that she figured it out). She will be 3 in October and she still goes nuts. Sometimes I get out of the car and wait for my husband to go through.

    The noise of the blender

    I don't think she's too fond of the vacuum either. :)

    Awww! :love7:

    Harry is afraid of the vacuum, but only when it's running. He loves to play with it when it is off. Beards scare him too. Otherwise, not much scares this kid. His fearlessness scares me sometimes, though!

    Oh, I forgot about the blender. That's not a favorite either. He likes the food that comes from it, though.

    Ditto this. She may look quickly with shock at first any anything new, then just laughs.

    My daughter was always afraid of baby dolls when she was a baby. It broke my heart, because I was envisioning living vicariously through her with lots and lots of baby dolls. Nope, it was not to be. She's still kinda afraid of them at 10, which has saved me a ton of money as American Girl dolls scare the crap out of her.

    I wanted one of those so badly when I was a girl! I hope my daughter's not scared of them b/c I want to live vicariously through her too. :wink: (They are expensive though. That's why I never had one.)

    I'm 45 and they still scare the crap out of me. My DH loves antique shops so we go occasionally. Nothing is worse than turning a corner and being confronted with a display of creepy old dolls staring down at you! CRAAAAAP! All the hairs stand up on the back of my neck! :shaking: :hmph::crybaby::sad1::shock::eek:

    And why, oh, f-in, why do they always have to have to put them up high where they're looking down at you with their dirty, paint peeling faces?!

    Oh and clowns don't get me started on clowns! :clown: :cussing:

    S is pretty fearless for the most part and it's sort of a concern for me. I mean, I love that she's a risk taker but she makes me lose my breath sometimes.

    That said, she has developed some new fears just in the last two weeks -

    - the vacuum cleaner (as soon as we turn down my mom's street she starts telling me that the vacuum cleaner is turned off, put away, and out of batteries)

    - the polaris (which she calls the puhwaahwis and it
    took me a while to figure out what this new fear was. Notice it is vacuum cleaner-like)

    - ice chests, no idea why. Although I've started telling her it's for keeping snacks cold and that seems to help

    - Jack's Big Music Show - she will hide behind the sofa if it comes on. This happened about a year ago and then went away, but it's back now.

    My 2 1/2 year old son only has one true fear....and that is of Gollum from the Lord of the Rings movies; except he doesn't call him Gollum, he calls him "Precious" :laughing7:

    He is CONVINCED that Precious lives in our basement! :)

    My 2.5 year old is terrified of fireplaces and nightlights.

    Fireplaces, I can understand, if we are talking about real fireplaces. But he is also afraid of the cover of "Goodnight Moon" and his dollhouse because of the pictures of fireplaces.

    Nightlights... look like little fireplaces, I guess?

    She was a HUGE fan of Jack until the Little Bad Wolf episode. I don't know why it bothers her, but if we're watching Noggin and they even do the promo for Jack, she freaks out.

    Your DS and I have something in common - that thing is CREEPY!

    My DS (nearly 2) isn't really afraid of much. When he was a little baby, my SO's voice would often frighten him because it is so deep and loud.

    They definitely see things we adults can not! My daughter keeps pointing at a smiley face that is outside of our living room window. It's always in the evening, so I'm guessing at a certain angle the streetlamps form a "smiley face" you can see though the window. I can't see it, so I'm guessing.

    Also, the two little buttons (min and hour) on my car's digital clock have been "eyes" to her for at least a year now.

    He is afraid of "that Cookie Monstah." That little jerk Calliou also has him convinced that monsters live in his room. We got that one covered by letting him take his bat to bed.

    Aidan is too little to be afraid. Maya claims to be afraid of everything but is secretly fearless.

    When Max was a baby he was terrified of Thomas the tank engine. I think it was the big eyes.

    Danae isn't afraid of anything at the moment. She had a brief fear of elevators (we rode one that had a very abrupt stop), but that seems to be over.
