9 monther - what is going on?

My dd is going to be 9 months next week. She is a very active happy babe, but in the last fortnight seems to have changed alot. She is crawling(backwards) and understandably is finding it frustrating as the toy she is aiming for gets further away. She cries, but does not seem happy in any position on the floor. She has also started to a complete crying fit if she is layed down for a nappy change or to have clothes put on. She has always loved her bath and kicks and splashes madly - but even that has changed and she cries. She has also taken to waking up at 4.30am (usually sleeps until 6.30am) and goes ballistic unless I feed her. She doesn't seem to be suffering with her teeth - any ideas? anyone had anything similar?

Hi Ambrosia
Thanks for message - she hates being restrained and recently does not like buggy - what she does love is being in the backpack - but she weighs a ton and I do short trips with her, but my back can't take it! I take her out a lot and I don't think she is bored - just hugely frustrated with where she is re mobility...I guess it won't last forever - just knackering me out at the moment
ps - god that must have frightened you with bath!

I think the whole backwards crawling thing can be really frustrating but it doesn't last too long!

My dd (14 months) absolutely hates having her nappy changed/getting dressed etc and is always trying to wriggle away, has been like that ever since she got mobile!! It is a pain I must admit but I don't know how to stop it!

Ds3 is just 9 months and is going through this crying/frustrated patch too and I remember ds2 and ds1 did as well - round about the time they were trying to crawl but didn't quite have the hang of it! I think it's a lot to do with frustration.

Ds3 is also waking late evening at the moment whereas normally he goes to bed at 7.30 and doesn't stir till 7.30am.

He also goes mental if I lie him down for a nappy change.

Try not to worry about it - she'll be a different baby once she gets moving properly and can pull herself up on the sofas to stand up! Then you find you have to do nappies standing up (unless dirty of course - then you have to give them something to hold while you change them!).
