looking for opinions on 8 month oldHi,
I am looking for opinions... my 8 month old has been more cranky and difficult again lately and I'm back to playing detective.
He is currently on Prevacid solutabs (10 mg) 1x/ day and has been since about 6 months. He is around 19 1/2 lb. and is gaining fine. After going on Prevacid, I saw a major positive change in his mood, sleep habits and eating. Things were going really great until a few weeks ago.
For the past few weeks, he has been up at night on and off with a lot of burps & gas and I'm not sure if it is just teething (he has no teeth) or something I'm feeding him that doesn't agree with him or something else. He has also been burping up a little again and he hadn't been doing that for a while... Sometimes it sounds like he is swallowing burp too and I've found a few messes on the floor where he was playing.
So am I missing something? If it is teething, should I wait it out or do something? Is it just his age with more fitful sleep and crankiness in the day?
I do wonder if it is a food problem. He was doing great with babyfood veggies, fruits, oatmeal & rice cereal, in addition to breastfeeding. Not sure if babyfood meats or wheat could be a problem? He doesn't have a true allergy (was tested) for wheat, dairy or soy. Not sure what to try first, if anything.
Anyway, thanks for all thoughts! Do appreciate the help in sorting out the puzzle :)
