Q.

Crying Baby

My baby is crying accesively so I took her to the paediatrician he could find nothing wrong with her after he took many test and checked her from top to bottom.

I have noticed that the crying starts when it seem to me she is irretated with her toys, when I leave her for one second, when I make her do things that she doen''t want to do.(like put her in her pram) She doesn''t cry a bit she cries as if there is something very wrong. She cries very accesively.

She has never done this before, when she cried in the past there was always something wrong, like she was sick or she had a injection, or her teath was sore. She never was a baby who cried like she is doing now.

She is now 7 months old what can it be? Is she developing her own will, personality? what can we do? the crying is very bad.

Please Help!

Paediatrician

Your baby is indeed quite young to be showing what appear to be a combination of separation anxiety and early temper tantrums. It will also be hard to deal with this as she is so young. You will need to show her as best as you can that you are always there for her and when she gets angry to try to divert her attention as quickly as possible onto something else. I am sure that some of our forum members will also give you good advice with your question.

My boy is 8 months &  I have the same problem its so frustrating &  Im also clueless as to whats wrong or how to make them stop. I tried everything &  nothing seems to work, I guess it is the teething but I hope this phase ends soon. Good luck

COULD SHE NOT BE TEETHING?
SHE IS PROBABLY GOING THROUGH A PHASE - SHE IS NOW AT THAT STAGE WHERE SHE KNOWS WHOSE WHO AND IS CLINGY - IT COULD ALSO BE HER GUMS
