Can Mondays be tough on a 4 month old after Daddy goes back to work? My husband works monday-friday and spends all weekend with us, and our son is as happy as can be then Monday comes and our son is fussy doesn't want to take a nap and cant be put down. Is this normal in a 4 month old?

I never thought of the different schedule, that would make sense because we wake up earlier and its quieter. He always perks up when Daddy gets home too though. I am very patient with him and sing to him and nurse him to soothe him a lot. Thank you for your response!

Sounds like it's normal for him. He may be sensing your mood, or he may just be missing his daddy, or a more relaxed schedule. Let's face it, Mondays are different than the weekend, the schedules are different, the mood in the home is different, even the times you eat can be different.
Try to keep the schedule the same on the weekends as you do during the week. That might help him. Also try to get enough sleep yourself so you are better able to deal with his fussiness, (yes I do know that's easier said than done).
