So question for you ladies. 9 months old (or almost) and he whines/screams pretty much anytime he's on the floor, or basically anytime I'm doing anything like picking up or cooking or just not holding him. Okay to let him bellar in his playpen while I clean the livingroom?

Yup - babies get mad when you don't give every second to them. I used to put them in their bouncers or whatever they were in at the time and bring it in the room with me, they seemed to be more OK with that. I could get things done and make it a funny game for them, I got stuff done and they were entertained lol.

Dude, I'm at my whits end with this kid almost. Seriously, if he's not eating, he whines nonstop. He can be playing on the floor and perfectly content and STILL whines! I was cleaning the living room and Jason was doing dishes and Rory was crawling around and whining and Jason goes "Will you DO something with him?!" and I'm standing there going "WTF do you want me to do? He whines ALL THE TIME..." And then when I told him he couldn't play in the kitchen, since he was trying to eat the broom and pull the trash over, he had a tantrum. So I put him in his pack and play, with toys and such, and he no joke screamed for over 20 minutes at me.

Could he possibly have colic or reflux? Caleb had nasty reflux and he would cry a lot. We finally switched formulas (If you use formula, I would maybe ask his doctor about it) and we had him sleep in his carseat during the day (not recommended most of the time, but the position helped keep the reflux down) and put him on some probiotics. It made a world of difference. He could also just be very attached - have you tried wearing him while doing your housework? I know it's not easy (or even fun lol) but it may help, too. Some babies are just more attached like that and grow to be independent when their older.



I'm sorry it's like that, though - it's frustrating, but it's something he will grow out of, whether it's something like reflux or just being attached.

Nah, I don't think he has reflux or colic, he's just a griper. Like he's eating right now, and he's just whining lol. I've tried to wear him on my back once and he hated it. I haven't tried since. I honestly can't think of any reason he does. Fed, dry, has had boob, and I give him water from time to time so no clue. He doesn't do it if I'm not around either. Happy as can be at my moms, or with dad. He sees me and he whines. I'm telling you he's already a manipulator lol.

Aww, he's probably just attached!

Or he's at a stage he's just unhappy and not sure what he wants. That's what I'm guessing. He's not quite as mobile as he wants to be but gets bored easily. And we're always stuck at home, so I'm sure he's frustrated a lot. I know I am.
