Whiny baby!

Tara - posted on 07/18/2012 ( 2 moms have responded )




My baby who is now 11 months old is soooo whiny!! He hasn`t been this bad before but I`m wondering if it is from carrying him around so much? From the moment he wakes up he whines and whines and it is hard to put him down and let him play on his own. I thought by 11 months he would be a bit more independent? or is this normal? Anyone have tips for mama who is going crazy?

I agree it's probably teething. It could also be separation anxiety or a combo of both. Regardless it's completely normal.

Have you given him plenty of pain relief for sore gums. Even though you may not be able to see teeth coming through he will be getting them. Give him some paracetamol and rub his gums with gel. Give him par boiled carrots that have been in the fridge to chew on. If this helps in any way then it is definitely his teeth!
