My son is 14.5 months old, and has started a new behaviour in the last few days that has us baffled, exhausted and very frustrated. He always wants to be held & carried, and for some unexplained reason, seems to HATE to be sitting down. He's not potty training yet, and the only thing we can think of that would have caused his fear is that we traveled in the car for about 7 hours yesterday. He traveled just fine until about the last hour, when his fuse blew something spectacular. Combination of missed naps, irregular schedule, etc... I think is what tipped him over the edge. He just didn't want to sit in his car seat anymore!
He was so upset he was gasping & red in the face. I nearly took him to the hospital I was so worried about him. I had a mini meltdown myself.
Any ideas on how to deal with this? I hate seeing him so upset...
my daughter goes through phases like this all the time.
they usually last for a few days, where she will want to be carried everywhere and held constantly. thank goodness they dont last long. but as far as i know its quite common.
as for the long trip and meltdown, i am sorry. that must have been hard. thank goodness they resilient and he will soon forget.
Maybe it's because his mood and his schedule is just all thrown off from the trip. The long car ride on top of being away from home and having a different schedule probably just exhausted him. I'm guessing it will just take him a few days to get back on track and feeling back to himself again. We've been through the same thing in the car before and it's just awful (for both him and for us!). I hope
things get back to normal soon!
