I have an 8 month old daughter, who is extremely afraid of the vacuum cleaner. I haven't had any issues with my daughter at all.. including teething, eating, sleeping through the night, never any problems, BUT... when I turn on the vacuum she screams her little head off, and takes a while to calm down even after it's off and put away. It isn't the loud noise because noises, loud noises, don't bother her. I have tried holding her while I vacuum, and have tried my husband holding her while I vacuum, but nothing helps. Has anyone else had this issue? Or does anyone have any tips to overcome this fear.. or even make it a little easier for her?
