My DD has been acting different. Since midnight she has been throwing crazy fits. She will be fine and giggly one minute and then 2 senconds later she will burst into tears and start screaming. She won't eat more than an ounce at a time. She's not spitting anything up and she doesn't seem gassy.....what could it be...? Should I take her to the doctor??? Oh, she's 4 months old.

  • Could be an ear infection, tummy ache, anything really.....I'd take her to the ped. and have her checked out. It's really hard when they are this young. Better safe than sorry.

  • My daughter is that age and she was acting like that she ended up having a UTI. She didn't have a fever just really fussy and wouldn't eat like normal. I think you should make an apt

  • I'd say maybe an ear infection. I would bring her in to have them looked at just in case.

  • When is the last time she pooped? If she hasn't pooped in awhile, I'd be guessing constipation. If not that, then is she well rested? If she hasn't been sleeping enough, it can lead to major irritability. If it is neither of those, then head to the doctor for a check up.
