    From Longman's Dictionary of Contemporary English:-

    Fuss

    1to . worry a lot about things that may not be very important
    I wish you'd stop fussing - I'll be perfectly all right.
    2 to pay too much attention to small unimportant details
    Paul was fussing with his clothes, trying to get his tie straight.
    3 (American English) to behave in an unhappy or angry way
    The baby woke up and started to fuss.

    fuss over somebody/something

    to pay a lot of attention or too much attention to someone or something, especially to show that you are pleased with them or like them

    His aunts fussed over him all the time.

    Hope this helps.
