Depends: The irritability is the important issue. This depends on how you are feeding him. You should seek the view of his pediatrician.

Cranky 9 month old: Could your infant have new teeth coming in? That can make little ones irritable. Also this is an age when many things are changing including length of naps, introduction of new foods, baby exploring his world by climbing, walking and putting everything in his mouth. Check in with your son's hcp if he is also having increased coughing/gagging, diarrhea > 5 stools a day, increased feeding problems.
