where has my placid baby girl gone?

DD is 23 weeks old and was so placid and laid back. She is now a grizzling whingy baby who cries whenever I walk away from her!! She is also feeding much more. Could this be a growth spurt?

Any chance she may be teething?

Probably either growth or developmental. I found the whole six-nine months section pretty tricky with both DCs - they get frustrated because they want to do so much more than they can. Really starting to notice the world and unable to interact/communicate with it. Is her sleep disturbed as well?

Yes she is teething. She has been since 8 weeks when she got her first tooth! Her sleep during the night is not disturbed but actually getting her to go to sleep is a nightmare! She fights and fights it.

Could be Wonder Week 19 having an impact - 4-6 months has a lot of mental development going on which often makes babies clingy and irritable and can play havoc with their sleep.
