  • Take a Parenting class. Call your OBGYN to find one where you live. Sometimes they are free.

  • Probably starting to teeth.

  • There can be multiple reasons for the fussies. There's a growth spurt that hits at four months. Teething is pretty common at this age too. You haven't really given us anything to go on, in order to offer you more than that.

  • She may be teething . I would ask Dr. A teething ring would help. She may need more sleep .

  • It could be teething. It could be she's bored etc...Babies cry for many reasons obviously but we need to know more info. My daughter would cry when I lied her down because she had acid reflux. A lot of the time, people thought their baby was colic when they really had acid reflux. What helped was, I propped her up and never let her lie flat. I was also prescribed a medication that she took until she grew out of the reflux at about a year old.

  • Whenever a child changes personality, the first thing to ask yourself is to check out if she has something medically wrong. At 4 months, it is not unusual for babies to get ear infections or tummy problems. Has she started on food recently? Maybe she is not ready. You may want to make a doctor appointment. Next, pay attention to what is going on in your household. Is there something new going on? Are you feeling any new stress? Babies are VERY perceptive. They can respond to any new sounds, feelings, smells, etc If all those things are OK, look at her changes in development. At 4 months, babies start to become more interested in things around her. She will become fussy from boredom. Play music, sing, dance. Change positions often, different places in the room, different rooms, from the swing, to the floor, to the boucy chair, to whatever else you have with lots of things to look at. Good luck!
