My son will be 8 months old this week. For the last 2 weeks when I pick him up from the babysitters he is very fussy, sleeps most of the night, and very clingy. Over the weekend it is mostly the same way. Normally he is very happy, playful, fun, and lots of smiles. He's not eating as much as he should be and at times what he does get down comes back up. I took him to the DR after week 1, but they didn't find anything. Can someone help me please?

Thank you for responding. His DR ended up ordering labs and an x-ray of his abdomen last night. Turns out he is very constipated. Hopefully we can get him cleared out as soon as possible. :-(

It could be a combination of separation anxiety, teething, growth spurt, and/or some minor virus. Make sure he is drinking enough breast milk/formula to stay hydrated (enough wet diapers), give him all the snuggles he wants, and keep an eye on the situation.
