One of the most exciting parts of parenting is being able to watch your child's unique personality unfold. And you don't have to wait until your child is out of their toddler years to know whether they'll be outgoing, shy, talkative, quiet, or a mix of it all. Although a child's personality will undoubtedly change and mature over the years, there are a few early signs your baby will be sensitive that are worth paying attention to, because some personality traits don't change.
Sensitivity, despite it's societal negative connotations, isn't a bad quality in children. Although highly sensitive children can be difficult to understand and parent at times — especially if your personality types are different from your child's — understanding what a sensitive child needs and what makes them great is important.
The Huffington Post did note that some sensitive children are also termed "high needs," and these babies are often very difficult when they're young. However, most sensitive children grow up to be highly intelligent children and adults. So, if your child fits these signs of a sensitive baby, focus on the positive aspects of the term, instead of wishing your baby was more easy going or relaxed.
