- Why would a healthy newborn fuss 5 to 15 minutes after nearly every feeding?
- Why do some toddlers give their parents the "cold shoulder" when they first see them after a long separation?
- Why do some babies cry for a long stretch every day at the same time (often in the late afternoon or early evening)?
- Why would older babies suddenly seem afraid of members of their own families?

My 9 month old often refuses to let my husband put him back in his crib at night. I have to go in and nurse him every time he's up in order for him to go back to bed and sometimes even then he doesn't want to go back in his crib!ReplyDelete
My 13 month old just won't get in his high chair at mealtimes. If he's sitting in my lap, he eats his food just fine.ReplyDelete
My 18 month old rocks and bangs his head on his crib. He always does this at nap time and sometimes at bed time. He also does it if gets woken up in the middle of the night (especially when he's sick and having trouble sleeping). He'll either sit up and rock backward or will rock back and forth while on his stomach. He seems to have long stretches where he doesn't do it much but then will do it for several days/week. Our doctor says not to worry that he's using it to self-soothe and that he'll outgrow it. But what is going on? How did this become soothing? He's even done it hard enough to leave bruises a couple of times (but will stop if we go in and reposition him...unless he can't get back to sleep).ReplyDelete
