My baby cannot handle new people. She smiles from a distance at strangers but the moment anyone tries to touch her, she cries a lot. She doesn't get a lot of exposure to new people . Just a few guests here and there. We were sent into a deep thought after an episode which happened recently. How the heck is she going to handle 50+ new people at her birthday party? It will surely be a nightmare. We are planning on reducing the number of people and possibly have the party at home. My question is, did anyone of your kids or someone you know have a fuss-free first birthday party? What can I do for it to be easy on her? Any advice/suggestions?
