Q.

frights

hello doc

my daughter is 9 and a half months old and since birth she has always gotten big freights from the slightest things it has since improved but she still does get frights often. What is the cause of this and is there reason to be concerned or will she grow out of it?

This is normal and is usually a reaction to a sudden loud noise. This is part of the normal startle reflex seen in babies. She will grow out of this.
