    Default 4.5 month old advice

    Hi mums and dads.
    I have a four and a half month old son.
    He has been such an interactive happy little thing, smiling and babbling. Last Friday he stopped babbling and started making different noises, squealing and laughing. Monday he started looking at me less and not smiling every time I smile at him, he seems to be more interested in what's going on around him now, whereas before he only looked at me. His feedings have gone from maybe one a night to sometimes three and he seems grumpy all the time, He is also sleeping more.
    I don't remember such a big change in my daughter around this time.
    Has anyone experienced something similar?
    The doctor says its normal after having bronchiolitis for babies to not be themselves for up to 6 weeks, but I am a little worried.
    Thanks so much.

    Isn't there a pretty major leap/wonder week at about this age?

    My baby quite often did this on his leaps. It would seem as if he was checked out of noticing people, but just always looking around. It would always get better after a week or two. I don't know if this is the reason for your baby but it seems very familiar.

    Not sure, but DS1 was constantly cranky and screamed and fussed at 4 months. I was told 4 month monsters - apparently developmental?

    He probably has discovered 'the world'. He can see further. So many different sights.

    Its not like he is purposely not taking notice of you but he is in awe of everything.

    It's all developmental. And normal.
