my 7mo DD is petrified of the hoover. For the past couple of months as soon as I turn it on she starts freaking out and crying hysterically. I have to wait until the husband comes home to do it as she seems ok if someone holds her but this isnt always practical as my husband is often away with him being in the services. Does anyone have any ideas?

sorry to say my DD is the same and hasn't grown out of it (now 22mo)..!

My 7 YO still doesn't like it that much but he doesn't like any kind of loud noises.

Wait till she's in bed.

My DS was the same. I would hold him while I did it, but it wasn't until he was walking and I showed him how to "help" me that he calmed down.

Then he wanted to sit on it while I hoovered.

DD (3) is the same. There have been a few times when she has been OK with me doing some vacuum cleaning. Usually when she wants to help. But if she is tired then she gets really upset by the noise.

I find it easier to get DH to vacuum when DD is at nursery and I am at work wink

Both mine hate it. Sadly I had to give up hovering......

Ha and indeed hoovering. The hovering was fun

MrsK - you must be devasted.

<wonders where the hoover might be>
