Hello we have a 4 year old son and are currently trying to have another however our son is just terrified of babies. He can't stand when they cry and he cries he needs to leave the room and can be uncontrollable with his tears. He is worried when they are not crying that they are going to start. I don't no what to do iv explained why babies cry etc but it doesn't help.

He has this issue also with hand dryers but they are easier to avoid!!

Any experience with this? We desperately want another but is this just cruel what will life be like if he doesn't get over it. X

Dd1 was like this with hand dryers and it turns out babies crying too smile

They get used to it. Don't put off dc2 for this reason! Dd1 was 4.5 when dd2 arrived and now dd2 is 1 we're all used to her crying grin
