My formerly happy baby is going NUTS!!! For the last few WEEKS now he's been SO hard to be around. Initially I thought, "oh, it's teething". Well, NO TEETH yet. Then, well, its a phase. THIS LONG? He was sleeping great, NOW he's waking almost hourly, nursing constantly. He is only content when I am holding him and carrying him. I wear him in the Ergo ALL THE TIME. I'm WAH so this is getting hard as I need to sit and do analysis with a freakin' microscope and he's SCREAMING because I'm not moving. He's getting ready to crawl so maybe that's why he's so discontent. Maybe? I don't believe he has an ear ache or anything, my DH has checked his ears (he's a doctor). He's eating fine, nurses regularly. We were all sick with stomach flu last week, but since then have recovered so I know he's not still sick. What the heck is going on? He doesn't want to play on his own anymore, nothing, no breaks, constant whining unless I'm walking around with him. Oh, I should mention. IF he naps, its for like twenty minutes then he figures out he's alone and FREAKS OUT. I can't take him to the gym daycare for even 1/2 an hour anymore as they come get me because he's freaking out. I feel like I'm on the edge of cracking here and I hate that I'm so frustrated with him and I'm, of course, just bottling it in. DH is useless with him as DS only wants to be with me. Is AP backfiring on me?!! Is he suddenly High needs? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHH!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I love my son with all my heart but this is so so so so hard right now. Will it end and my happy boy come back to me?
