Hi, My ds is 6 months old and for the past week he is so cranky and whiney and he was never like this!!! He is eating fine and sleeping fine and has no Temp, Just wants to be held.....He will only play for 10 mins happy then starts complaining and When i pick him up hes fine then if i go to put him down he cries........Any Suggestions????? Is it teething??? I dont see any teeth coming in......Thanks xoxo

You don't necessarily have to see teeth for him to be teething. Some have no visual signs at all. However, if you look in his mouth does he have any ridges? Redness? Swolleness? Lots of drool? He is at the prime age of teething. That is most likely what it is. Try taking a teether and place it in the fridge. Give him the teether and see if it helps. If that seems to satisfy, YEAH! GL!

I didn't see any teeth when my son was so grumpy last week and then on Saturday night he bit me - and it hurt...He had a tooth! Honestly, we looked just the day before and there was nothing there - not even a white bump! In retrospect we realized that he wanted his pacifier a lot more - which is something he only wanted at bedtime.

Sorry - which is something he only wanted a bedtime just the week before. We started giving hima teether and he seems a lot happier with something hard to chew on...

I have a 9 month old, and he is exactly the same! We just had our first tooth Jan.17th, no change since though, he just seems to be 'worse' - I can hardly put him down. He is like yours, fine, if I hold him..Right now, my mother is babysitting, and he is screaming his head off - I think he is just becoming more aware of how he can manipulate the situation and me...
