nonstop crying? Eleanor's Mommy♥ 1 child; Virginia 687 posts
6th Mar '13

My almost 6 month old DD has been crying all day- when I tried to do tummy time she just cried, put her in her jumper and she cried, nap time she cried until she passed out. Basically unless she was being held she was crying- which is odd since she hasn't done this all day crying before.. any suggestions?

She could be coming down with something.. or maybe teething? My guys always a grumpy little butt when he's teething.

If you're sure she isn't sick or teething.... then I would say she just wanted her mommy today. :(

are you sure? My son usually cries a few days before the tooth even starts to break the skin. Like one day there was nothing there then like the next day there it was lol. or so it seemed.

Maybe that's it, I'm just frustrated I guess- she's never like this.

She could be teething, it just not coming in yet. My son did like that for a while, but once it started coming in he calmed down. Is she chewing on things like no tomorrow?

You can't really tell they are teething until it breaks through.

Yeah she has for a little while now, you all are probably right about her teething. First time mom here, haha.

It sounds like teething. DD teethed for months before she cut a tooth. There were days tht she would get super fussy and not much would make her happy. Her big sign was drooling and sticking everything in her mouth. If its not that, maybe her tummy is bugging her. You could try giving her a warm bath. That might calm her down.



My DD is also an Eleanor. We were going to use Jane as a mn, too, but we went wih Juliette. :)

Run your finger along her gums. I could feel dd first tooth before I saw it. It was on the bottom

oh I know what you mean, hon. (been there done that.) Feel her gums, there's probably little knots on her gums. If there are, she's most definitely teeth. Usually they get the two front bottom teeth, then the front two top teeth. (some kids get "lucky" and get all four of em at the same time like my son did...)
