Mamas, I need either advice or someone to let me know their toddlers have gone or are going through a similar thing.
My son is 14 months old, recently he's been so emotional and hissy.
Some examples, yesterday I was holding him and he put his hand down my shirt in front of people so I gently moved his hand away and didn't say anything- there was no possible way I could have intentionally hurt his feelings, but his face! He looked at me, his bottom lip curled under and his eyes welted up. I've moved his hand away numerous times and everything's been fine, but now it's the worst thing in the world.
This morning we were nursing and he bit me, I said ouch lightly and unlatched him and he made the same exact face.
The last 3 nights he's been waking up every 2-3 hours.. He typically slept through from 8:30-6 then back in bed from 6:15 to 8. I know sleep regression is somewhat normal for this age.
Just now he climbed on the couch, I sat him down on the floor and dat there with him, he stood up, screamed and cried so hard his whole body started shaking.. And this is new, it's happened at least once or twice a day for the last week.. Is this a temper tantrum?
I'm at a loss, where's my sweet happy baby boy?
He's got 3 of his molars coming in and he's got a third bottom from tooth coming in so I'm assuming part of it is teething, part of it is sleep deprivation, and part of it is just the age?
