I am a working mom (mon-sat) and my son is 8 months old this week. He's already got his bottom two teeth and I'm pretty sure he's working on his top one now. There is no visual evidence, but his hand is constantly in his mouth, if not his hand then its something...anything else, he's been really irritable lately (which is not normal, up until the past week he's always been a happy baby-except for the week it took him to get his bottom two teeth)... he's constantly rubbing his face/eyes/ears like he's tired but wont sleep. He still takes "regular" naps - about 10am, 1pm, and sometimes 4:30pm, then goes to bed about 7:30... but always wakes up about every three hours. He used to wake up happy/to play, but the past week he's woke up cranky/fussy/crying and 90% of the time his eyes are closed the whole time but he throws himself around like crazy.
I don't know what to do anymore... I'm tired and completely worn out and any ideas or helpful tips are welocome!!
Help my son and I sleep! :)
Thank you!
