Ok not sure if anyone can help. My 18 month old ds has suddenly turned into a monster over the last few days. He normally gets pretty irritable and grumpy when he's teething, unwell etc and we can normally tell this is why and give him the benefit of doubt for few days. However for the last 3-4 days he has been absolutely horrid. Just flying off into tantrums over the smallest of things and we can't seem to find any reason why. He had a high temp last week for couple days so we presume had a virus/cold but hasn't really got any symptoms of being unwell apart from mild runny nose.
He's normally such a happy baby but he's just constantly whinging and having tantrums all the time. Stupid things like going over a bump in the road and he's crying. Even friends are making comments about how he's not himself and we've had to cut several play dates short as he's getting so wound up. As he's having periods of being happy I'm starting to think it's just an age thing and we have now hit the terrible tantrum stage. Can't face the prospect of that being the case but just can't find any other cause. Do you think there can be a medical reason even though we can't notice any signs? Ie could he have an ear infection, sinus pain etc etc?! Or have people noticed when their babies start going through tantrum stage it can come on quite quickly?
