Some things can be pretty scary when you’re little and you don’t understand. Watch as this baby is startled by a shadow.

I remember my first baby was petrified of the vacuum.

Is/was your baby scared of anything?

  • My little one doesn’t much like the sound of the vacuum either.


  • I loved the way the baby jumped a couple of times then worked out they weren’t going to be hurt. So adorable


  • My son used to scream the house down when I vacuumed, to the point where I couldn’t vacuum with him in the house. However, he found puppet shadows on the wall hysterical.


  • My youngest is not scared for many things, but was scared for lifts for a long time. She’s nearly 3 years now and it gets far easier to take the lift.


  • I know a little one who is scare of kitchen appliances which make much noise.
    Cake mixer, food processer, rangehood, vitamiser, juicer and a few other gadgets. You will find her hiding at the other end of the house, possibly in bed with the pillow over her ears.


  • Oh, little one! Playing with shadows is really intriguing for small kids!!


  • It’s so easy to startle an infant when they haven’t been exposed to something earlier. Clever video.
