My DS is almost 8 months old, and although it doesn't sound bad - I'm getting really frustrated.
Everyone comments on how happy and chilled out he is, and really he's never upset unless I take something from him which he really wants i.e phone etc.
The problem is he'll just go go go all day and is hard to settle. He shows no signs of tiredness at all, I can't settle him with anything but boob - but now he has a tooth and he's starting to bite me on purpose (he thinks "Ouch" is hilarious and has a good giggle). He stopped taking a dummy just over a month ago...
I can't settle him in his cot as he just crawls around giggling and kicking his legs - you can't pat shush that!!
He used to have a bath n bed routine but the Dr said to only bathe him twice a week due to facial eczema... But I think we'll have to reimplement it.
By the end if the day he's manic even after 2 or 3 day sleeps; he won't feed, or be held, he pinches and bites. I've got bruises on my arm from last night..
He only gets fruit, veg, oats and a bit of meat, lentils etc.
Yes I know "at least he's not crying" but that really doesn't help my situation...
I can't wean him as he won't take a bottle and formula in his straw cup confuses him - a lot of people are telling me to stop breastfeeding but then I'll have ZERO tricks up my sleeve to settle him.. Others can only get him to sleep in the pram.
I'm at the end of my tether... Any suggestions on getting my crazy baby to calm the hell down!?
