My little girl is 7 month old and ever since she was born she has slept through the night! (lucky me!) and when she got to 4months old she took to eating like a duck to water! She was the perfect baby but the other day it's like someone has flipped a switch an turned off the good baby or like someone has swapped her for another baby.
She suddenly is very moody and is throwing tantrums for everything. She won't eat she won't let me leave the room she won't have her milk. Everytime I try and feed her she closes her mouth an moves her head away an then stars screaming like I'm torturing her. She throws a paddy when ever she wants and she now waked in the night and wants to play for 3 hours then goes back to sleep.
I don't understand what's happened! Why is she being like this ? I'm hoping it's just a faze and it will end soon but I don't think it will......
Anyone else's LO done this ? Any help or advise is appreciated.
Around 6 months of age babies realise that you are seperate people and they suffer with seperation anxiety. They also suffer with it around 18 months. When DS went through this phases, we played lots of peekaboo games and I'd leave the room and bounce back in, make it fun. I'd gradually extend the time I was out the room until I know I could go and make a cup of tea or load the washing machine without him screaming. As for food the only thing I can suggest is try LO on finger food. My DS loved food but by the time he was 8 months he much preferred finger foods that he could eat himself.
my LO went through a stage like this around the same age. However, i strongly advise not to take LO out thhe cot at night to play games/toys/watch tv as this is something that she will get used to doing everynight. When LO wakes, go into her, comfort her & just repeat. Eventually she will settle back down. Long process but, thats what i did no advice i'm afraid on the eating front as my son has been a little git to feed since day 1 & he is 3 in june! So no tips x x
Feeling this pain, also had a fab sleeper who slept through the night and would eat for Britain. Got to 9 months old and we also went backwards, at 13 months now and still up in the night 3 to 4 times a week. Im sure that developmental milestones and teething are to blame so looks like this could carry on for a while until the full set of knashers appear! Good luck hope your LO settles soon
My son was like this and when he hit 9months was a nightmare!! The simple solution that worked for us? putting him in his own room!!! I dont know if your babys in the same room as you now but its what worked for us! literally overnight!! x
