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!!!!!

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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">s

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.
