My son is crabby for no reason today.

I try to feed him, he only wants crackers. I gave him tylenol and baby pepto and still all he does is cry. It's so out of character for him and after a full day I just really need a break from it!

Yeah my little girl does the same. I have learned to do what I now and then let it be. Just lots of love and kisses. On these days I so stick to routine! Most times I am not even sure they know what the problem is, and I find it brings the most comfort to do what they know and can predict. Then remember...this too shall pass! Good luck!

He's 21 months and he is teething but he's not holding his mouth like he normally does when that's the problem. Timeouts normally work. About 2 minutes in his crib and he returns to his normal self but not today. I tried letting him graze too, he threw the crackers on the floor and ground them into the carpet. My angel boy has turned into a crab box. I'm so glad it's only a few more minutes to bath and bed time!

My son does this sometimes... I've learned just to let him be. I put out a bowl of cheerios, some crackers, and his sippy cup and let him graze. The more I push him the more fussy he gets so this seems to be a compromise that has worked for us both.
