    I'm sitting here crying after getting my baby to bed tonight. She is wonderful - so smiley and happy generally, I used to be able to say she only cried when hungry or tired. Except that isn't true anymore - she is quite whingy! Constantly and it's so so draining. I was blaming teeth but that can't be just it.

    The other thing is that she is very mobile, crawling and pulling herself up on everything, which means she can't be left alone for a second. I don't even get the chance to get a cuppa! When I do (if DH makes me one) she cries as she wants to try everything that we have! We do give her a little of any food we have but I think a cup of tea is pushing it.

    Has anyone got any tips for getting a minute to myself? and the reason for the whinging?

    I know I am so lucky to have her and wouldn't change her for the world but at the minute I can't wait to go back to work!

    Thank you

    Could it be a wonder week hun?

    Is she like it all the time or have you noticed it peaks and then eases off a bit? In case you're not sure, a wonder week is a period of rapid mental development which can be very overwhelming for them and cause them to be whingy, whiney, and just generally very difficult!

    It could also be teeth. Louie has two coming through at the moment and it's prett bad with the whining a lot of the time :(

    Hope it gets better.xxx

    Mine is always whingy, demanding, upset and clingy. You get used to it.

    Coffee is saved for special occasions - like visiting when someone else can amuse my LO or at work only. Sometimes I will sit down with a coffee after LO has gone to bed

    Otherwise I just work with her and try to enjoy it xx
