My little man has been super fussy lately and I'm starting to get really frustrated. I feel like I'm doing something wrong! He has his bottom 2 teeth, one top one just broke through and another bud is right under the gum on top. So yes, he's teething. But does teething last for WEEKS?!?! I didn't have this with my daughter! He basically just screams from 4pm on. He wasn't colicky and he sleeps well. Usually late afternoon crying is associated with being overtired, but he sleeps from 5:30p-6 or 6:30am, and naps around 2.5hrs daily. So that's not his problem! He had an ear infection a couple weeks ago and was on amoxicillin for 10 days. I thought this was why he was so cranky because he spit up a lot. I thought maybe it was making his stomach upset, and I think it was because he had a lot of poopy diapers too. So we were done with that and the spitting up and diaper changes improved, but he's still a crank pot! And he won't let anyone out of his sight without crying!!! I'm getting so fed up that I just want to cry! He's getting an 8oz formula bottle in the morning, noon, and bedtime. He eats one container of #2 bananas around 9am and I feed him about 1/2 fruit and 1/2 veggie around 2:30pm. Am I feeding him too much? I was also wondering if the orange veggies or
