To answer your question there are several possible reasons. He may be teething or he may be hungry or he may have pain somewhere such as an ear ache. His nose may be blocked or he may have acid reflux causing him discomfort. There are several other possibilities. You will need to decide which one is most likely and if necessary take your baby to be seen by his doctor if you feel that he is not well.
