My son is 5 months and throwing fits

Out of no where my 5 month old just started throwing fits. If he is in his walker he can be as happy as ever and out of no where just start throwing a fit as if he has to be held. Is this a normal stage? How long does it usually last if so? My son is not one that has to be held 24/7 but is held frequently. We are loving parents and his g-parents are definitely loving...so what could this be?

  • Maybe make sure you give him some one on one attention and play games and peek-a-boo

    baby games like that

    sometimes their legs will hurt if in a walker too long as well

  • Sounds like a little tantrum because he is frustrated about something. If he's in his walker maybe he's not getting something/somewhere he wants to go? I would give him a little more one-on-one playtime during the day and more floor time. My DD is 8 months and gets mad if I put her in the walker because she can't explore her surrounding as much as she would like.
