Parenting--Toddlers/Infants/Pre-Schoolers/my son constantly cries


My son is eleven months. He had colic from one monhs old to three montjs old. Now i cant get out of his sight with out him crying and screaming mom hystericaly. His dad holding him wont even calm him down he will scream and cry no matter how long i do i fix this? I cant even go shopping without him. When i go to work he will crytil he fslls asleep and as soon ad he awakes he searches the house for me crying until he weats himself out again. He does this every time i go to work help

Dear Katlin,

My apologies for taking so long to get back to you. I would strongly suggest that the first step you take is getting him into his doctor to determine if there is any physical problems you son is experiencing. Crying this much at his age means something is going on whether it is physical or emotional.

Next check and see if he is getting in some teeth. Teeth are very painful at any age! There is a tremendous amount of pressuring when the teeth push through the gums. The pain is very hard to young ones.

Lastly, check your environment as sometimes there are changes going on around him that might make him react as he is to you and to your husband.

Best Wishes!
