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?

Mine does the same so I sit her in her chair tell her that I said no and let her sit after about 30 seconds I pick her up and tell her that it’s not ok to do that but let her know I still love her it’s been working pretty good and I try to let her know it’s ok to feel mad treat them like actual people they understand she is only 11 months

I am so glad this is common...my LO, almost 10 months old...will throw his head back along with his body weight if he doesn’t want to do something I’m trying to get him to. Like sit down to play...or change his diaper even...(that took like 20 minutes one time...since he would not sit still.... I feel like I really need some good advice for this...redirecting his attention to toys, remotes, wipes, etc is no longer working...

I have 9mo and she pulls her hair, ears and scratches her face off so I have to hold her hands every time I tell her no

Omg yes and lately she swings her head all the way to the back and throws herself to the ground. One thing I started doing was I hold her hand when she’s swinging and let her down to the ground gently and step aside, it kind works
