My 7 month old has been acting off for a week and I don't know what to do...
He was eating cereal, purees, etc several times a day- and eating a lot of them, now he doesn't want any solid food just a bottle.
He's very clingy. He doesn't want to play or crawl around very much instead we wants to be in my lap playing with my hair, zipper, etc or just sitting.
Nights are the worst, I dread nights. He has never slept through the night but he used to sleep 3-4 hours at a time, now he's barely making it an hour at the most. He won't sleep in his co-sleeper, only in bed with us. He half wakes up crying, and soothing doesn't work. If I can't settle him he starts wiggling and tensing, arching his back and legs and escalating to a scream. It can get so bad that I have to leave our bedroom with him so my husband can sleep.
I don't know what to do. He doesn't seem to be in pain anywhere, he doesn't have a fever, all his bodily functions are working... Should I call his doctor? Could it be his teeth? Is something wrong with his belly? I'm worried about him and feel totally over my head. Please, do you fave any ideas?
