DS is 9.5m and very active, a good crawler, pulling to stand etc. When he's in a good mood he's adorable. What I'm struggling with is that without fail, approx 45min to 1 hour after he's got up from any nap (or sometimes sooner), he starts to grizzle, seems unsettled and will generally wind-up into a complete meltdown (and he is LOUD!!) if I dont leave the house with him. If we go for a walk, (pram or carrier) the crying stops within a couple of mins and he's contentedly babbling in about 5-10 mins. After returning home he's usually fine for the rest of the playtime. Not such a massive issue, BUT it is v annoying when the weather's bad (and this is the worst Sydney summer in god knows how many years). I pretty much have to go whatever the weather.
I have tried holding him - he fights it; food - distracts him for a bit but not long; different room in the house - same. He has been like this since about 3 months really, except at that stage I didnt always recognise that he needed a change of scene.
Im worried that it will become difficult to go on several walks/outings a day when it's winter, and he is starting day care 1 day a week in a couple of weeks and i have no idea what they will do with him there...(perhaps they'll have some good strategies).
Anyone else's kids similar and what have you done to get them through it?
