Hey guys and girls. i have looked on the net for my problem but cant seem to find what im looking for so i was hoping someone could help me out

i have a 1 year old boy and he normally goes to bed fine, he rubs his eyes,i get a warm bottle and put him in his cot with it and he drinks it all and passes out without making a peep.

but a couple of days ago he started acting different,i would put him to bed and when i would give him his bottle he would get upset and throw it away and if i try to put it in his mouth he gets more upset. if i leave him in the cot crying he throws the bottle out of the cot and wont go to sleep. i have to go in there,lay him back down and pat his hair and sing twinkle twinkle to him for like 20mins LOL

i thought maybe he didnt like the milk anymore so i put some milo in it to make it taste better for him, it seemed to work,but once i put him into bed with it he would act the same.

he also went from drinking 3-5 bottles a day to 1-2. is this normal?

the main problem is that he wont go to sleep properly anymore because he usually drinks himself to sleep and now he wont.

any thoughts would be greatly appreciated :)

thanks heaps guys,its so obvious now :) missus just emailed me and said she found him chewing on his toy in bed this morning. i guess when your running around trying to look after him you dont see the small things. chewing on things, red cheeks sometimes, less bottles, more poo's. ah i remember teething :)

hahah thanks again guys, im sure all will be well tonight

a good way to see if they are teething is .....
-check for unusual nappy rash/flushed facial cheeks
-get ya finger and rub his/her gums if it placates them, then their gums are giving them the sheits

one vote again for teething mate
