Crazy 8 month old! Just a phase? HELP! I'm going crazy!!!
My daughter is almost 8 months old. She has been acting crazy!!! It is normal for her to get a little cranky when I walk away to make her a bottle or whatever... but the last two days it has evolved into some sort of monster....
She SCREAMS if I walk away for two seconds, she yells at me if I won't let her have something or if I take something away, she yells if she is bored, and GOD FORBID you try to get her to go to sleep! She has also been waking up several times in the night crying/fussing, which is not normal for her. (I guess she did do that last time she got teeth...) And when she starts screaming it is nearly impossible to calm her down now! She even refuses to take her pacifier and screams harder if we try to give it to her. I thought maybe it was her tummy, because I have been slowly increasing the amount of formula I give her each day. But she did fine on it last week. And if it was her tummy, she would cry all the time, right? We were at the mall with my mom (who gives her her undivided attention) yesterday like all day and she didn't fuss once.
Sooo, is this just a phase? I feel like I have a newborn again! Please help me! And please bump if you don't know.
