My four month old has been getting very fussy!

She has always been a very content she seems to get very fussy 1- when she is tired at night and 2- when we take her out in the evenings around a lot of people. Is this normal? My husband and I kinda think she is just going through a stage, but we would like some input! Thanks :)

  • Could be teething. Or she could just be going through a stage like your husband says. Or she could be starting her stranger anxiety. It could be so many things. Teething would be my first thought though. Sorry I couldn't be much help.

  • My guess would be teething. My 5 month old started having little moods @4months, and now sometimes she is just miserable because of teething. She will be fine and dandy on minute, then just be crying and fussing like you wouldn't believe. Its terrible. It is almost like you can't comfort them. But i give her some tylenon and a little baby oragel on her gums, and something cold to chew on and in a little while she is fine. And she may not have another spell until the next day or go a few days. But it always could be a stage to. Try giving him something to chew on.
