Restless Little Girl

Hi Doc,

My LG will be 1yr old on the 17/03. She was a very pleasant LG until recently......I am about 8 wks pregnant...
My LG has turned into this cheeky, angry monster.
I am not sure why she is behaving this way...do you think this is normal if they are so small and then theysense that there is another baby on it' s way........

I am still breastfeeding her at night, should I carry on seeing that I' m pregnant........

Your advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Your baby is unlikely to know that you are pregnant. Something is worrying your baby to cause this change in her personality. Is she teething, possibly getting her molars?Or do you think that she has pain somewhere possibly her ears?You should probably stop breastfeeding now.
