Hi! I'm having a problem with my only child. My soon-to-be 12mo old boy has always been mild mannered. He's great when we bring him out, never shouting or screaming his head off, like some babies would. He's adorable and is friendly even with strangers. At home, he's by far the best-behaved baby I've ever seen (inc. my younger brothers from what little I can recall), but it's further confirmed by my mum, who of course, has seen many many babies in her long life.
Now this happened only a couple of weeks ago, when I believe he found out his ability to scream when he wants something, or someone. He has been screaming ever since. He has always been close to my mum and dad, as I'm working full-time, but when I get home, he refuses me totally. Bedtime is always strictly me, as I would love to have that last few minutes bonding with my son before he sleeps. But these days, getting him into the bedroom and making him sleep is a nightmare by itself. He will scream and cry like he was beaten or like I hurt him. I don't know what to do. He turns out to be so different now, and I don't understand why he's acting this way.
I wanna know if any of your children are acting similarly like mine, and what you do to keep sane.
