excessive crying at 1 year

my gran has been telling me that my son has bouts of crying during the day. No specific time and not every day either but for the last 3 days his been crying everyday and for the last 2 nites he wakes up in the middle of the nite and cries as if someone hurt him. He also eats poorly and doesnt want a bottle that often either. What could be the problem and what can I do? My partner and I are recently seperated could it be contributing to the problem

Something seems to be worrying your baby. It is possible that he has been upset by your recent separation, but it is important to be sure that nothing else is worrying him. Is he teething? Another possibility is an ear infection.It would be a good idea to ask your doctor to check him as his crying is a recent problem.
