The stranger danger thing doesn’t usually show up until around 12 months. My baby has seen my neighbor several times a week since he was born. Around 11 months all of a sudden, every time he sees her he cries. She doesn’t even have to hold her! If she just looks at him, he cries. It’s been about a month now and it’s better but I think your MIL is misremembering the age for that sort of thing. Usually they’re cool at the younger age and once they start connecting that this isn’t mom/dad, that’s when they start being wary of strangers.
