my 8 1/2 month old has been crawling for a month now and he still wants to be held. he cries majority of the day unless I'm holding him or on the ground with him. He plays more when we are home but if we are out somewhere else he will not let me do anything. I know some say to just let him cry, but after all day I'm ready to pull my hair out .

He's normal. Baby wearing can really help (if you can do it... I never could) through this stage. Hold him when you can and set him down near you w/ toys when you can't... but keep talking to him and take breaks with him.
