Not good around a lot of people

My LO Is 5 months and I admit I haven’t taken him around a lot of people. We live far from family and he is not in daycare. When we do go to family events everyone wants to hold him and play with him but he gets overwhelmed and cries a lot. Any advice on how to break this habit? I want him to feel comfortable around other people.

    More practice. Do library storytimes, playgroups, etc

    He’s still young so I wouldn’t worry that he needs a ton of socialization right now anyway. Start small — trips to the grocery store, library (and see if they have free storytimes), errands, etc. It will be good for him just to get out and observe the world around him.

    He’s so so young, don’t worry at all. Just snuggle him when he cries, he’ll let you know when he’s ready to expand his social circle!
