This kid is so full on. He is constantly getting into everything, no amount of redirection or correction is making any sort of difference, and he seems to outsmart any sort of baby proofing.
He refuses to sit in his high chair any longer then 5 minutes making meal times frustrating and getting food into him difficult.
He bites, everyone, sometimes for no reason, and it hurts. He bit me on the shoulder this morning and I cried.
He whines ALL. DAY. LONG.
I love my son but some days I truly struggle to like him once he gets into this mood. And my 2 year old is fed up with him too. She is over being bit, hit, screamed at and having her toys snatched that she is telling him to go away or worse, biting or hitting back.
What can I do? Please tell me this is just a frustrating phase. I never did this age with my DD, I was in hospital for 2 and a half months so I'm clueless.

My 15 month old is driving me insane!

Sounds like it could be a age thing as my 15 month old is exactly as you described also!!
He bit my 4 yr old dd the other morning on the cheek and left a mark and bruise all because she tried to pull him away from something he shouldn't have been near!!
He is constantly climbing onto chairs etc and just getting into pretty much everything he can get his hands on!! I know it's totally frustrating!! I also have a 7 wk old to look after which makes it extra hard!!
I have found with my ds that aslong as he's constantly stimulated he will be perfect but who has time to constantly stimulate them with other children!!
I'm looking into daycare for him for one day a week to give him some play with others his age and too have some constant stimulation!!
Sorry I'm no much help but I know what your going through!! Big hugs!!

How long can this last? Seriously he's driving me bonkers.

Ahhhh yes i remember that stage!!! DS started getting a tad more co-operative after a couple of months

This might sound irritating, but try it for a day and see if it helps, it helped me heaps!
I tried to think of this time as really frustrating for THEM, not me. They are becoming physically able but we continue to put constraints on them, and know what they want but can't communicate very well as they don't have a full range of words.
If you look through their eyes you will see how frustrating it is.
Again, I'm sorry if this is the last thing you want to hear, but try to find a new mind set for a day and find things to entertain him.
This change of thinking really helped me, and mine went through this stage while I was morning sick, it lasted about 2 months until he played well and co-operated easier.
Sorry if this is not what you want to hear X

I get what you're saying october, and if it were that easy I'd do it. I understand that this is frustrating for him too but I also know that I have a house to keep clean, 2 exams and a 1,000 word essay due in under a month, and a 2 year old to deal with. Not to mention I find having my clothes constantly pulled at so annoying, he's pulled so hard on some of my shirts they're now stretched.
I'm so so tired of being whined at and nothing I do fixing it. I'm so sick of not being able to cook the way I want to because he has hidden all my utensils. I'm sick of my carpets smelling faintly of pee because he takes his nappy off and ****es everywhere and no matter how much I clean it still smells of ****. All I want is one day without the meltdowns and the tantrums.

My DD was very similar at that age. It does pass. Sort of! I'm assuming you've eliminated any possible dietary triggers? Preservatives, colours, sugar still send my DD into a spin.
Otherwise, I just did whatever I had to... "whatever works" is what my mothers group and I used to say to each other on a regular basis.

I know how you feel. DS is all most 4 and is still the same. He only some times bites now.

Elleandsam is there anyway you can get a little break? Like even an hour of someone else like a grandma in the house looking after him while you do housework or assignments?
It must be exhausting trying to do assignments when you're already physically exhausted from your son x

He sounds like my 2 year old. I don't have very many kitchen utensils left either.
I got bitten yesterday too, it really hurt, I bawled my eyes out. But then when he saw me cry he started crying too, so we ended up hugging it out with both of us in tears.
My house is constantly a mess, I don't know where the phone home is half the time.
So all I can offer you is hugs.. Who knows when it gets better!
