DD cries when anyone laughs ...?

DD is a fairly happy baby/toddler and doesn't cry much. However, if someone laughs, then she bursts into tears. I can't work out whether its the sudden noise or whether she thinks we're laughing at her. She also cries if someone else (another child for example) cries.

She's 14 months now and has been doing this pretty much since she was about 7 months old

Has anyone else had this ? I'm assuming its normal and she'll just grow out of it but just curious to see if anyone's dc's are similar

DS has done this since he was quite young - he's almost 2yrs now. He gets startled by loud laughter and starts crying. It's definitely the noise that bothers him.

Ds doesn't like loud noises either - grannie sneezing, sudden laughs, anything like that.

Now he's 2.4, he doesn't cry though, he just looks worried and says 'What was that Mummy?'

my sister did this from about 4 months. it was definitely the loud noise - and the fact it happened suddenly without warning. but she has grown up into a teenager who loves to laugh.
