My son is 8 months on Friday the 14th. The last few weeks he has been so grumpy. I was wondering if any other moms babies are going through this. I think it might be that he is not yet mobile on his own, and he is getting frustrated.
Any other ideas. Hehehehehe I know not a very interesting question, but I am hoping for some help.
Thank you

  • Check his mouth but it could be the mobil thing too my son was so fussy when he was trying to move on his own with out the walker so I would guide him and he walked and 8 months and 2 days. Or should I say run ya' still can not stop him.

  • I agree with all of the above, check that mouth, my daughter just cut 6 at one time so that explained her sleepless nights, she will be 8 months on the 17th.

  • It could be teething, but my dd dif the same thing. She is a great baby-happy most of the time. She endedup with double ear infections. She did not have a fever or anything. You may want to take him to the doctor to make sure there is nothing medical going on before you just assume it is teething.

  • Between teething and wanting to move, do you have a bouncy swing that hooks above the door.
    I have many many babies in my family right now and most have things that keep the baby moving their legs and loving it... as long as their doing the move they seem happy!! Good Luck!

  • Has baby's schedule changed at all? If you have ruled out all pain issues, maybe think through the level of activity in baby's day and sleep schedule. Tired kids cry more.
