My 22 month old DS has turned into a whinging monster! I have a 5 week old DD so I know that he is adjusting to life sharing the attention, but even if I am one on one with fun activities he still whinges! Today has been particularly bad, from the time he woke at 5.30am he has been horrible. I hate saying it but it's the only way I can describe it. Both my DH and I have tried to entertain him while the other attends to DD but we are getting so frustrated with him to the point where it's now 9.30am and I have put him to bed before I crack it.
Is this a phase or is there anything I can do??

Help - constant whinging

It can be a phase but dd6 was the same and it turned out to be a food-related issue. Certain additives turn her into a whinging monster! Flavor enhancers and color annatto/160b drive her crazy, I'm sure there are others but we haven't pinned them down yet.
Maybe check your pantry for any foods you have introduced lately and stop them for a little while. It's a very easy thing to happen because these additives are so common in the supermarket.
Here's a couple of links

All I can say is that my DD went through the same phase when DS was born (she was 24 months) and it lasted for a few months. It was incredibly frustrating and draining especially with a newborn. Unfortunately I have no secret to snapping her out of it, she just grew out of it. My main tactic was diversion (very small success rate) or just ignoring her because the more I tried to help her the more I would feed into her tantrums and whinging. Good luck!
