My daughter is twelve months and incredibly mellow. Sure ages had her bad days but for the most part she was pretty content, until she got sick recently. It was just a low grade fever & cough but man was she upset!

Now she seems to be feeling much better, but shes still incredibly fussy, although its starting to feel more like a temper tantrums.

Before she got sick I had almost weaned her & she was sleeping soundly in her crib. Now she must nurse and sleep in bed with me, and she just fights until I'm so tired I finally give in just to get some sleep. It's not just that, she screams at me now, and cries and screams if the tiniest thing doesn't go her way, if she drops something or loses her balance and falls over.

This has all happened over the course of two weeks & I don't know what to do...

My DD (nearly 2) was stranglely crying alot , she is a happy and content toddler she cried like this off and on for 2 days or so my mama and I just knew DD just wasnt herself..., I took her to ER (she too had a cough) and the Doctor said she had some blisters on her throat (thrush) and gave some meds for it mouthwash etc, it helped out extremely!

My dd also does that if she trips falls (cries for a few seconds gets over it etc.) I just give her lots of TLC...although she could very well be teething getting molars etc..
