how to stop the whining of 8 month old
how do you stop an 8 month old from whinging and whining all day long! this has been going on for months and i constantly attend to childs cries and end up carrying him around quite often. he screams if i don't give him attention and also won't learn to crawl - screams if i put him on tummy etc. he is now standing up and leaning against furniture so should i just give up on the crawling thing. i can't reason with an 8 month old child so is it ok to just ignore him and let him scream or is he too young to do this. i want him to learn some independence but dont want to do the wrong thing and have him end up a basket case.
