Anxious-avoidant attachment where infants avoid contact with their mothers after separation or ignore their efforts to interact. They show less distress at being alone than other babies. Infants are very cautious in the presence of a stranger. Their exploratory behavior is noticeably disrupted by the caregiver 's departure. When the caregiver returns, the infants appear to want to be close to the caregiver, but they are also angry, so that they are very hard to soothe or comfort.
