He's probably quilling. During quilling, most babies get extra grouchy, and their personality can change, because...it hurts when they have spikes coming through their skin.

So during this time, it would be best not to try and pet him. Just let him chill in your lap, or near you, and try not to touch his back too much. Also, giving weekly oatmeal baths with flax oil rinses will help during this time. Once he's done quilling, you won't need to bath him as often.

And keep a close watch on his eyes, depending on what you put in the water, it may/may not irritate his eyes. Just make sure no crusties are forming and that the redness clears up tomorrow. ^_^
