my daughter seems to always be whining. its constant. ill feed her...she will fuss in her highchair till i get her out. ill give her milk or water if she is thirsty and afterward she might be fine for 5 minutes then she will start walking around whining again. she will even get frustrated if something goes wrong while shes playing with her toys. good grief!! idk what to do. she could be teething...but its aaallll the time!! she just turned a year old.
anyone go thru this? what do i do? any suggestions on toys, games, discipline even? help!

Sure. I've got six kids. Most of them have gone through a time of higher frustration. It's just part of growing up. My only possible level of "discipline" for a child this age might be removal from a dangerous or destructive situation.
What she needs most is to have her parents MODEL calm behavior and show her how to address her needs/frustrations in a more mature way.
BTW, what are you doing when she's whining? Does she whine when you are playing WITH her or only when you're doing something else?
