There is a Korean word for babies that are scared of strangers: nat-ga-rinda/낯가린다.  Babies don’t like unfamiliar faces starting at about 5 months. Seeing strangers makes them cry. Reach for the baby and screaming ensues. I hope this will stop strangers from touching him.

Nat-ga-rim/낯가림 can last up to a year.
