I think he might be ill but have given him calpol and has not helped. He has not got a temperature, NHS Direct are never helpful when I ring and say "He just won't stop crying and I think something's wrong".
Bf not helping. Pacing not helping. Pushchair not helping. Singing not helping. DP defo not helping .
Oh dear, poor him (and you). Is his bottom sore? I've had dd up shrieking tonight as it hurt to wee. Or is he messing with his ears? Can you stick the tv on and just sit with him for a bit, see if it distracts him? Much sympathies, dd's been like this a few times and it's awful.
my 1yo was like this at 3am yesterday, the only thing that helped was thomas the tank, he got really ill once a few weeks ago, had a rash and v high temp, turned out he was just teething his 2nd tooth, dont worry it will make baby more upset.
Thanks for all your suggestions Just offered water, he didn't want it though. I thought it might be teeth but calpol usually helps, then again maybe it's a big one. I've only got a silly pipette thing instead of a proper syringe and am paranoid about overdosing so he got closer to the min than max dose.
Have put ITNG on and he is mesmerised and calm But not sure if it is the best plan, he will go to sleep in his pushchair but not usually on me, and then will have to take him to bed again and hope for the best! Do you think it's worth giving ibuprofen as well now, or save it in case he wakes in 2 hours?
Oh sorry I missed your messages Yes he has been much better today, except he had a meltdown at my friend's house, luckily she had some teething powders. I was a bit sceptical as they haven't worked since he was 6 months old but they seemed to calm him down and perk him up straight away. So I have been to get some and am happy to have something less medicinal to try if I am not sure.
He has had a good dinner and gone to bed very easily tonight.. Think I will have an early night myself
