DS is 7.5 months old. He is getting over the stomach flu, with just maybe one or two diarrhea diapers a day now.
This past few weeks though, he has started to flail and punch me, and kick me when I hold him, while he starts to cry and whine. Naturally, I'll put him down when he starts to do this. Putting him down just makes him scream and cry even more, to the point when he starts choking back his tears. I of course pick him back up then, but he just continues to kick and punch me while whining.
I'm not sure what to do. He's not hungry or wet and trying to cuddle gets me punched, so I'm not sure what it is. It does happen when he's tired, but I don't get why he just won't go to sleep then (he's been able to put himself to sleep for a couple months now).
ETA: It isn't the stomach flu that's bothering him; he's back to his regular old self now.
