    Default 1yr old whinging - starting to lose my patience!!

    My 1yr old boy it starting to really test me.

    All day he whinges ...... If you sit him in the high chair, at your feet making dinner, changing his nappy, in the car - all day , everyday.

    its really starting to get me down.

    I took him to the docs for a check up of ears etc and all clear nothing wrong as he sleeps all night and has his naps.

    I don't know what to do, he just won't be quiet and it's to the point where I have to leave coffee shops etc as he is so loud and uncontrollable.

    please help me ...

    To be honest it sounds like he is bored and needing more stimulation.

    Hmmmm wonder what else I can do with him. As soon as we play or do things and I get up he screams. My first one was never like this, it really gets you down

    When our bub (1yr old too) whines at home I put on industrial ear muffs - they muffle the noise and keep me sane.

    Boredom, teething, wanting some attention?

    Ds2 is 11 months and I find he loves sitting in his high chair playing with measuring apps while I cook and we sing and dance the whole time. Or helping me fold the washing. He plays peek a boo with it.
    I find the day goes Better if I just make a game out of everything I have to do. The car is the hard one but my ds2 is happy to play with my ice coffee bottle so I'm not sure what you could do.
    I hope things get better

    My daughter can be similar. She's starting to get better at playing by herself, but up until recently she would be perfectly happy as long as I was sitting/playing with her at her level.... as soon as I tried to do anything else that didn't involve her, she'd get upset. Don't blame her really. My approach is just to do anything she can't be involved in when she's asleep/someone else is with her, and play with her or include her in what I'm doing while she's awake. If she has to do something she doesn't like (such as be changed) I make sure I'm interacting with her as much as possible... talking, singing, playing games etc. It can be frustrating at times, but all in all works for us.

    I'm not sure that's much help, but you're not alone. Sounds like fairly typical 1 year old behaviour to me.

    Also how old is he? 12 months is a lot different than 20 months, for example.

    My 18 month old has periods like this and it does try your patience! He certainly wouldn't sit and play with measuring cups anymore... I tend to let him empty Tupperware cupboards and drawers lol. But taking him out is always the best thing.
