Cranky baby- food allergies or something else

My DD has been SO cranky the past few days. I don't know if she is teething or what. I'm beginning to wonder if she has a sensitivity to dairy. She doesn't have bad poopy diapers but is just generally cranky and very clingy to me. She is pretty much ebf because she doesn't have an interest in solids.

She's 9 months old so I'm wondering if I'm being crazy since she probably would have shown symptoms by now. *sigh* I just don't know what to do.

Ds is sensitive to dairy. I ate a lot of dairy before and until 4 months he was fine. Then he developed eczema and had trouble pooping and was very gassy, but didn't have anything odd with his actual poop. I removed dairy and his eczema and digestion improved.
I hear it's not abnormal for allergies/sensitivities to develop suddenly.
It's a pain at first but it's not too big of a deal to try going dairy free. Remember it takes over 3-4 weeks to see full effects of eliminating dairy. Ds improved in 4 days and continued to get better over a couple weeks.

Wow, 3-4 weeks?! I should give it a try. If it helps her, I'd totally be happy.

Sounds like its growth and development. Very common at the 9 month mark. Could also be teeth. There is an awesome book or app called the wonder weeks that tells you exactly when and why your baby is behaving the way he or she is by how many weeks they are. Usually pretty right on too! Crazy. I would just chalk it up to a phase and no it will pass soon. Don't we wish our lo's came with manuals! Lol

It's got to be something because she's also waking up like 6 times a night. She doesn't stay up, but it's still annoying. I'll have to look into that app- thank you so much!
