last week LO was sick (from about May 4th through the 8th) he had fever and snotty nose. During that time he started to cry a lot more. Sometimes he just fine but then out of nowhere he will start crying and be inconsolable. He's generally not a crier, just when he's getting tired or when i try to change a diaper. Well, the cold went away, but the crying is till here. When he's crying, nothing seems to help except me carrying him around on my hip, or going outside for distraction. I feel like I'm back to the newborn stage, this is crazy. If he's in a mood, he'll refuse food and bottles even if I know he's hungry. If I can settle him down, he'll drink a whole bottle or eat just fine. If I try to put him down on the floor when he's in one of these moods, he arches his back and rolls around on the floor or rolls around on me if I'm sitting with him. What the heck is going on?? Is he having temper tantrums? Is anyone dealing with this??
I'm thinking about bringing him into the doctor just to make sure he doesn't have an ear infection or something, but he's been sleeping just fine, doesn' tug his ears, and if i tap his ears they don't seem to hurt or anything... not sure what's up
