My son just turned 4 months and all of a sudden he has started in the evening time being really cranky. He just had a doc apt and she said he is healthy and all and there doesn't seem to be a real problem so i was just wondering if it was an age thing. It doesn't happen every nite though either. Let me know what you think.

itis quite typical certinly the worst time of day for my four - they are getting tired but not enough to sleep - it ai getting neat the time for their last feed but it's not time yet - you're tired - it's been a long day and you're looking forward to it being over and getting to your own bed so your tolorace level is down - i always found the best way is to distract them - go into a different room to play than you would normally be in -his bedroom for example if you normally play in the lounge - sing dance about with some music and be silly it helps not only his mood but yours aswell - and carry him about as you get everything ready for his night time routine then he'll learn what's going to happen next and be a little more patient - hope I've helped - good luck!
