Ugh, little man has been sooooooooo fussy today! He's 9 mo. and usually a happy little guy, but he woke up a whiny fuss pot and has not stopped. So, could it be teething? Developmental (crawling, pulling up, whatever)? Getting a cold? Please, someone throw me a bone that this will go away before the fussy hold-me-no-not-like-that-I-want-down-no-up-whiiiiiiiiiine drives me nuts!!!!!
"teething? Developmental (crawling, pulling up, whatever)? Getting a cold?"
Yes to all of the above. I would think teething first, try some Hylands teething tablets, they work like magic with my ds, even when his molars came in.Also maybe a frozen wash cloth, notcompletely frozen, massage his gums with your finger, oh an alittle diluted clove oil rubbed ob the gums will numb them. That is all I know to do. Hang in there momma my ds gets very attached and moody when he hit big development milestones.
If you dont have any of the above, some chamomile tea worked wonders for us, maybe in a sippy cup? It is probably teething at 9 months old.
All of the above. Unfortunately it will be a bit of trial and error, but often as pp said Chamomile Tea is a good "cure all". You can drip it into the babes mouth with a teaspoon. At least that is what some of my herbal books recommend.
Thanks, wise mamas, I was just looking to vent and I got some great advice! Off to make chamomille tea w/ a Hyland's chaser...
