This post is a cry out for answers or help!

The past about two weeks Bodie has seemed to lose it. He is constantly grumpy, wanting to just be held (even if it means wrestling him to stay in your arms) and tantrums like i can not believe.  Im talking full blown ear ringing, feet kicking and stomping, back arching, tantrums!?!? Its not normal, he’ll get grumpy when hes hungry or tired, and maybe when hes really tired throw a fit, but this is just not normal. He is always hungry, he just hit a growth spurt so its not that, he seems to do it for comfort right now i think, and hes always tired. He will take a two hour hard nap and be tired or acting like it an hour and a half later. No fever, no indication of being sick at all……..?

If you have ANY advice or just encouragement, please leave me a comment. Im pulling my hair out and its totally bringing me down.  Either what the HECK can i do to help with these insane tantrums (hes only 9 months) OR what could he have?? I was thinking an ear infection and have been trying to get a Dr.s app for the last two days.


A grumpy and balding,


I will post a update blog later when King Kong goes down for a nap if, if im not also passed out on the floor :)

    A couple of things come to mind . . . . Not sure of the activity level he is experiencing, but he may be getting over stimulated which may cause a melt down. There is a possibility that he may be getting ready to cut some more teeth. Although you may not be able to see a new tooth, he may be having some pain. If he is eating you out of house and home and sleeping often, I would say he is still in a growth spurt. It is TOUGH when they cannot talk . . . . Know you are doing a GREAT job and your are an AWESOME mom. Hang in there!


    • Thanks Michelle, took him to the Doc, nothing… of course. I think its just hot and getting to that ;terrible twos’ age alot quicker! lol

      Sorry about the title, bodie was hitting the key board right before i posted, thus the title… :)

  2. Gosh, I wonder if he is having a horrible time tolerating the heat? Do you have air moving throughout the room where he is? How about water? cool baths might help. Sounds like he is seeking comfort and just can’t get it. Getting the ears checked out is a good idea. Once he gets checked and if no medical problem – it may just be teething or a stage. Just remember “this too shall pass”. Sounds like Mommy needs a break, sometimes it really can get nerve racking. Walk out of the house if you are getting overwhelmed for a spell. Crying won’t harm him. Does he have heat rash? that can be itchy and miserable. If so, contact your pharmicist for something to put on that – they are the best form of information. Also, numzit for the teething area is good.
    Keep us informed, K? Love you and I do understand. G. Grandma

  3. Ash, Just thought of another reason for grumpiness and wanting to sleep. Constipation will do that. Are all his systems working Ok? Hope things are going better today. Love G. Grandma
