DS flips a shit when I start it. It's not very loud..if he's upstairs or in a different closed room and hears it, he freaks no matter what.
What do?! We are moving furniture around and need to vacuum. :(

Vacuum as fast as you can and let him flip out over it for a couple minutes? Have SO take him outside? Idk... My kids loved the vacuum

Have you tried wearing him? DS used to be scared of the vacuum and it was the only way I could get the house cleaned. He felt safe right next to me.
Or I just did it while he was sleeping.

Just let him flip his shit. He will eventually get over it.

My dd is like that with the vacuum but what i do is i take her and pick her up and let her help me vacuum and because of it she loves to help me vacuum now and is not afraid of it. Try that see if that works.

maybe if there was music in the other room he/she wouldn't notice the sound?
