My Baby is very Restless
Dear Helen

First of all I would like to say that thanks to your good advices re Seamus' unwillingness to eat from a spoon, it is now working much better!

Seamus is now 7 and a half months old and able to sit on his own. He is also attempting to crawl, and is constantly standing on both hands and feed and on tip toes. My question concerns the expected duration of his enormous restlessness.

He is absolutely unable to be at rest, regardless whether he is beeing fed, where he is so restless that I can hardly put the spoon into his mouth. At night he cannot find peace, he wakes up kicking and jerking, I try to lay him down, over and over again. This goes on for serveral hours every night, and I am now so very very tired ...

How long will this stage usually last?

Best regards
Bonnie
