You will be able to see your baby begin to take more of an interest in other children. Over a period of time, you will notice that your baby stealing glances at fellow babies, and maybe to crawl over to try to use the same toy. Ten-month-olds develop common concerns about aspects of everyday life that never bothered them before, especially things they don’t understand. Rather than dismiss or pooh-poohing the fear, gradually help your child overcome it. Slowly introduce the thing that is bothering him. Make sure that your child has the security of a “lovey,” or comfort object. An object of this type, can ease anxiety in a scary situation. If you know that you’re going to be exposing your child to anything that might scare him, it may be helpful to prepare for the possibility by pretending to play-through a game and acting out the situation so he is prepared.
