My baby boy is 9 months and 3 wks. I'm feeling very frustrated and overwhelmed because he is still not sleeping through the night, through out the day he is constantly crying and will only calm down with me. I can't give certain food because chokes up even on his own saliva. My first child who is 5 years old was COMPLETELY different everything was nice and smooth this also why I'm so confused with my baby at times I even feel like a bad mother. I just don't know what to do anymore I am mentally and physically exhausted. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Are You nursing him? My son was like this too but more fussy than crying. Sometimes they act like that when they are teething.Have you taken him in for a check up lately, (if you feel maybe something is wrong perhaps you should) Do you have any support at home? Baby's father/husband? Ask for help that doesn't make you a bad mom. I find when I am feeling like this a night out with friends really helps me. I've had a full nights sleep maybe 5 times in like the last 5 years I think. My boys are 4 and 2 and neither are very good sleepers. Good luck, give yourself a mommy time out and breathe!! It will get better!
