My DS is 25 months and it seems like he cries all the time. He's always been pretty quick to fuss, but lately it's driving me insane. I only get a few minutes here and there when he nurses while I'm at the computer (right now). Otherwise, he's on me all the time, crying at the littlest thing.
He asks for snacks a million times a day. If it's on a plate and he wanted a bowl, he cries. If it's cut the wrong way, he cries. If there are too many pieces, he cries. Yesterday I had given him a plate of avocado slices, and he decided to give me back two slices. I told him to leave them on his plate (I was in the middle of doing the dishes) and he screamed and cried.
If I go to the bathroom (even bringing him along) he cries. A toy falls down the wrong way and it's disaster. If the cat touches his stuff or sits in his chair, it's not good!
He was mad this morning that I used a laundry bag instead of a basket when we hung out the wash.
I'm a SAHM and have always practiced attachment parenting. I'm going crazy though...I'm with him all day and he is so needy and so quick to anger. I involve him in everything, and he'll go along with it. Like the laundry...follows me out, acknowledges we're doing it, but insists that he wants a laundry basket. And tells me he's "pretty sad". He's usually "pretty sad" these days. He gets over things and he never gets violent (never hurts people or things, doesn't throw) but stands there crying and very upset over little things over and over again ALL DAY! I don't get much done in a day...I don't really do chores beyond the bare minimum, he's too demanding.
We cut gluten and dairy 6 months ago (I was diagnosed celiac and suspect sensitivities in him too) and that seemed to help a bit with fussiness at the time, but it has come back in full force!
Any thoughts? Anyone been through this and have wonderful things to tell me? Please!
