Re: Help! dd sobs when she sees grandparents

If your inlaws are upset, I would try to reassure them that it's temporary and perhaps suggest that the perfume and/or smoke might be a factor. Now that I think of it, when dd1 was an infant, she seemed uncomfortable with mil, and she was living with us at the time. It very well could be the smells!
Yes, it is a weird frightened crying. Not just crying, but as if she is terrified. Poor baby
