My 8 month old has been super fussy for about a week or so. He has already cut his 2 front lower teeth and that doesn't seem to be what's bothering him. (He was less fussy when they broke through than he is now!) He is normally a very calm happy baby. I can put him down and he would just play until he got tired or hungry. Now I feed him a bottle and put him down and within minutes he is whining. If I don't get pick him up he will start crying. But even if i hold him he will still get super fussy and whiny. The only time he stops is if I walk around with him. It was nice yesterday so I took him outside and he was happy playing in the lawn for about 15 min then started whining again. And he had only been up for an hour so I don't think it was him being tired!
He has kinda regressed on eating solids lately as well, he just gets so mad in his highchair and clamps his mouth shut when I try to feed him. He will gladly self feed himself but won't take a spoon. But he is eating about 32 oz of formula every day so I know he is still getting enough to eat.
I'm going crazy here! I can't get anything done and his whining is incessant! Could it be a growth spurt? Bored? Separation anxiety? Arghhhhh!
