My 7 month old is extremely frustrating. He does not want to eat from a spoon and sometimes even though he is hungry he will fight about eating from his bottle. He does not want to crawl and actually gets upset if you put him on his belly. He will be laughing at me one minute and then screaming at me the next with no warning and then he will just go back to laughing. Some night he fights me about going to bed because sometimes he wants to be rocked to sleep and sometimes he just wants you to put him in his crib. He wants to be held ALL the time and if I put him down to do anything sometimes he will scream. The pediatrician tells me it is "just a phase" but I feel like I'm going crazy. I have never been around children and the baby books did not prepare me for this. If anyone knows what to do please let me know.Answer Question

I like what was said above and as far as crawling. My son hated to be put on his stomach too. He wanted to sit up more than he wanted to crawl, and he didn't crawl for very long, because he wanted to stand. And for the laugh, yell, laugh. He's probably just experimenting with different reactions because they are new to him.
