Early tantrums!? HELP!

My sweet little girl is 8 months old and has begun tantruming. She throws her head all the way back and screams when she doesn't get her way! She's doing it quite often now (getting into car seat, not feeding her fast enough, when I sit her down to play with her toys)...I tell her no, but she's to young to comprehend. Any suggestions as to how I can let her know that mommy will not tolerate that behavior?

Have a look at makatom signing as children benefit from it they will drop the signing as they start to talk. Explain when things are finished instead of no more as they will only hear more and think that’s what you want them to do.

I work in a nursery and have been dealing with children and tantrums for years. We use a therapeutic approach as children are just learning and developing we can’t expect them to know everything already. I have some top tips that we give to parents at preschool. Tell her that you can see she is struggling and to stay close. Children will only remember the last word that you say at this age so if you say don’t run they will run if you say please walk they will do that. Also reminder that children’s brains are like marble runs they take ten seconds for their brain to process what you have told them. We need to give them time to process information before filling them with more questions. Also look up scheme play because she may be doing things that are really irritating you but actually are a play pattern. Lots of info on internet. There is loads more if you say I wonder if you are cross or what ever you think her behaviour is showing you it’s called naming her need

My daughter is the same way ! But trust me ! They understand NO . When my daughters gets started I firmly tell her stop no . If she continues . I let her know she’s going to get in trouble and she turns her attention to something else. Stay firm on it . Our kiddos know more than we give the credit for !
