HELP! Normal for 9 month old or take her to the dr?
Okay I need help because I am at a toss up of what to do. Okay we have a wonderful 9 month old dd and up to two days ago she was perfect. Two days ago she started getting cranky and would cry whenever I was not holding her. I thought she was either teething or just having a bad day so I brushed it off well yesterday night was HORRIBLE! For the last nine months I would just give her a bottle and she would fall fast asleep well not that night. She stayed up and didnt want a bottle or do anything. She just would cry no matter what. She didnt want to stand up, sit up, lay down nothing. Finally she fell asleep on our bed when I finally laid her down on her stomach and patted and rubbed her back.
So today she was having the same problem with whining. So I thought it was because of her bad diaper rash she has. (She likes to dirty her diaper in the middle of the night and then sleep in it.) Anyways I have used two types of diaper rash cream and baby powder to help with it but I still think she is in pain. Anyways tonight I had the same problem I had last night. She wouldnt go to sleep and she finally fell asleep by me holding her and patting and rubbing her back. Which killed my back. Anyways is this normal behavior for a baby her age? I keep thinking maybe she has a ear infection because ear infections run really good in my family. And our two older dd are currently taking medicine for ear infections. What do you think?
