Stranger anxiety at three months??

My three month old recently developed "stranger" anxiety to people she knows. Anyone know why?? Isn't this really young? How long does this usually last? Anyone else going through or gone through the same thing at such an early age? Does this mean she has an antisocial personality?

No, your baby is not antisocial - she is probably just overwhelmed and needs some mommy time. Just mommy and daddy, not all these other people. Don't be too concerned, just follow your baby's cues and if she wants to go to someone else thats great! If she doesn't then just relax and accept it. 3 months is a tough age- they are becoming more aware of their environments and surroundings . She is probably just telling you that she wants to stay with you , not go anywhere else
