How old is he?

Lonelymum Sun 12-Jun-05 15:39:22

A bit off the point but has his poo returned to normal yet? I asked a few times on your original thread but you didn't see it.

Re today, could he be teething?

charleepeters Sun 12-Jun-05 15:39:23

9 months

If you think it is teeth, then give him some Calpol (or equivalent) and that should make the difference.

charleepeters Sun 12-Jun-05 15:40:34

a bit lonley mum it is getting better, i dont think hes teething he has no teeth or any symptoms

charleepeters Sun 12-Jun-05 15:40:59

he doesnt seem in pain hes just so clingy and whingy

Lonelymum Sun 12-Jun-05 15:42:08

They can have the pain before the teeth show. he is just the right age for getting teeth. But if you think it isn't that.....

kcemum Sun 12-Jun-05 15:42:34

Don't always get obvious symptoms when they teeth.

Is he coming down with something, has he had a temperatre, been pulling at his ears etc?

charleepeters Sun 12-Jun-05 15:43:16

he shoed signs of teething about 3 weeks ago, but nothing came, no signs of it now though

charleepeters Sun 12-Jun-05 15:43:45

no signs of anything!!!

Lonelymum Sun 12-Jun-05 15:44:30

That makes it even more likely to be teething. The pain can come and go for weeks before the tooth appears and the description of a clingy, whingy baby is just right too.

kcemum Sun 12-Jun-05 15:45:07

they can sometimes take a while to come thru' when the teeth first start moving.
I echo what lonelymum says give calpol and see if he settles.

charleepeters Sun 12-Jun-05 15:46:10

ok will try it ta x

Lonelymum Sun 12-Jun-05 15:51:09

Come back though if that doesn't work!

charleepeters Sun 12-Jun-05 15:51:23

just checked he has a slight temp

Lonelymum Sun 12-Jun-05 15:52:01

Oh dear. Is he eating and drinking?

charleepeters Sun 12-Jun-05 15:52:59


Lonelymum Sun 12-Jun-05 15:58:11

Not too bad then. You could try the Calpol to see if that helps with the temperature. Or is he just hot because he is in a state?

Aren't babies a worry?

It could be separation anxiety; this happens about this age when they realise that they and Mummy are not one and the same. If it is that, it is just a stage that they go through. A bloomin annoying one, but just a stage! Sorry, this isn't much help, but it's an idea! Mine has just done the same!

charleepeters Sun 12-Jun-05 18:20:45

Thanks for all your guy's helptoday especially you lonley mum you laways seem to be there when i need support, hes tucked up in bed now the calpol seems to have helped, thanks again xxx

Lonelymum Sun 12-Jun-05 18:24:52

kcemum Sun 12-Jun-05 20:27:01
