Has anyone got experience of this or any tips please?

My LG is 91/2 months and seems unhappy most of the time, unless she's crawling.

She used to love the jumperoo, she now screams and kicks when I put her in it and grizzles when she's in it. She screams and kicks going into her walker and high chair. She fights to get out of her high chair and grizzles and cries.

She often refuses food (baby led and purees), even if she's liked something previously. Some days she eats hardly anything.

She screams the house down when i lie her down to change her. I try and do it standing up but she isn't always steady on her feet.

She also won't go to sleep until 22.30 and can take hours to go down. Some nights she wakes twice and takes hours to go back to sleep. Other nights she sleeps through. She seems so tired.

EVERYTHING is a battle. I am so exhausted and feel like I'm failing. This has been going on for weeks now.

Can anyone help please?

How is he breathing when she sleeps? This is a very outside chance, but any sign of sleep apnoea? My DD had severe obstructive sleep apnoea and started showing symptoms at about this age.

Most likely is that she just really really wants to be mobile so is frustrated by anything that doesn’t allow her to develop her new skill! It’s pretty normal at that age I’m afraid.

Oh my god my 8.5 month old is like that!! He's driving me MAD!!!! He can't crawl but is desperate to! I started back at work last week and his usually fabulous sleep has just gone to pot... all he wants is to be carried about by me ALL the time!! Argh send wine!

@crazychemist I don’t think she’s showing any symptoms but I’ll keep an eye out, thank you!
It’s probably frustration, growth spurt and teething but I am SO exhausted. Everything feels like a battle and the smiles are few and far between.
@surreygirl1987 I started back last week, so I totally feel your pain! Mines a gin! Sending positive thoughts.
Thanks both xx
