my daughter is 9 months old and when she doesn't get her way she she starts kicking her feet about and crying and hiding her face into the floor and sometimes head butts the floor

I might have thought that my 9 month old is throwing tantrums. However, I have 3 older kids (2, 3 and 5 years old). This gives me perspective. My little girl does cry and kick when she is told no or when we take something away. I don't think of it as a tantrum, she is just expressing her frustration in the only way she can. As she gets older the "tantrums" will get louder and stronger, but also she will be easier to reason with.

yeah Ashton throws tantrums. If he has something that he isn't suppose to have like me or his dad's cell phone and we take from him, He'll start bonucing and throwing his hands in the air and bring back down. One time he even fell to the floor and started kicking. I hope he grows out of it.

yes definatly. charlotte throws her head back towards the floor and kicks, especially when she doesn't want her nappy changed. its so hard but we get through it. i'm just hoping this will be grown out of cause i'm scared she's going to hurt herself.

Yes my little man has just started this as well. They are starting to develop their own personality and know what they want. Diversions are very good for this and try to encourage something light and positive. I sing a song or do patty cake so that he knows I am not paying any attention that other behavior.

My 10 month old just started this the last few weeks. He really likes to throw a temper tantrum around meal times. Good news is that its is already starting to get better. I have had to walk away my fair share of times to to get a grip. We have been working on communicating and talking and it helps mom at the very least.

my 10 month old does that all the time, don't worry too much about it, I think they all get like that...and just like Jessica said, wait till they are older, you will appreciate her mild temper now!

My baby does this she just started and it seems to be more and more everyday. Someone told me they only do that if they are in pain but I am not sure about that.

Yes, it would seem that is what it is. My little one does the exact same thing (though she likes to headbutt everything even when she's happy). It's terrible! She's been doing it for about two months, so I finally started ignoring her and she's learning I won't put up with it. I even put her in the crib and walk away. She's doing much better now, and the tantrums only last a few minutes. Of course, they start up again, but not nearly as bad. Good luck with your little one, and hang in there. It DOES get better...I just don't know when :)

hi there i saw your question and wanted to reply, yes my 10 month old does exactly the same if he doesnt get something he has a tantrum a bit like the terrible 2's it sounds like all children go through this phase, im glad to know my son isnt the only one.

Oh my! i am glad to see I am not the only one! Someone told me this was a "learned behavior" and I argued that point because my 9 month old hasn't been around many kids and surely not ones throwing tantrum! She kicks, throws her head back, straightens her body, and clenches her fists! I have decided that as long as she is ok and not hurt I will "ignore" this behavior because any recation to it is reinforcing them to continue doing it especially if you pick them up! I have noticed that once I started doing that she now stops crying sooner and looks at me and then next thing you know she's playing again

yeah mine throws the occasional paddy but I just laugh at her so she stops when she realises that she doesn't get a reaction from me. its mostly because they know want they want but cannot communicate it to us, I can imagine that to be very frustrating. Distraction is the key!

How funny that my kid does something similar!!!!!!!!!! He actually kicks and falls backwards! He mostly does it when he is fighting sleep or when he feels I am not spoon-feeding him fast enough.

Mine just started doing that too except he hasn't gotten around to hitting his head on stuff. He only goes into full body convulsions if you take something away from him.

my daughter has being doing this for the last month or so and shes nine months old now. we try not to laugh when shes having a tanty, as she's so little we dont know where she learnt it, but we do ignore her and she soon gets over it! mostly when we take things off her that shes not supposed to be touching!!

Oh yes, my 9 month old son will slap me in the face and scratch me with his nails when he is over tired. Not so much for being told no, but just when he's over tired and fighting bed time.

My son will holler and cry until we say his name loudly and let him know that's not going to work. He's the youngest of 4 so I guess he feels he's got to get his say in there somehow. He will be 10 months old on May 8th.

Yep, I just watched my daughter do the exact same thing. She was 9 months on the 23rd. It seems like every time I tell her no or take something away that she shouldn't be playing with she does that

My daughter laughs at us too when we say no and tap her hand...It is hard to be stern cause it makes me laugh too...she has the most funny laugh, so it is hard not to smile when she does it, but we try.

The only time my 9 month old throws a fit is when she is being put into her car seat (once she is in she is ok) or when we change her diaper, that is her new thing...she screams, kicks, thrashes, and tried to get away the entire time you try to get a diaper on her. We have tried to give her toys, a bottle, or anything to distract her while we change her, but she still pitches a fit.

my son is 9.5 mths old now. if he doesnt get it his way, he cries out loud till he coughs and starts gagging. if i dunt stop him in time, whatever he ate gets thrown up. This has been happening regularly and it's really testing my patience.

As for sleeping, he wakes up intermittenly and cries to beheld till he settles down. This happens throughout the day. If i let him cry, he makes himself sick.

Why are kids these days so demanding?

my 9mo baby boy also does the same particularly during changing clothes time. sometimes he reaches for a toy and when he gets it, he throws it away. then he cries till he gets it again, then throw, then cry, get, throw, cry....

My little Gage does the same thing. He will kick and throw hisself backwards. I try not to laugh, but find it kind of funny how smart they are. They are already trying to train us to give them their way.

My daughter throws fits too like when I take something away from her she clenches her fist and screams at me at the top of her lungs. I am assuming this is a normal thing for babies if not I guess we just have butt babies lol but yes my daughter throws fits also. Sometimes she even hits when she gets upset. I usually just ignore her and walk away and don't pay attention to that behavior so she realizes just because she does that she wont get her way.

He sometimes gets upset when he wants something he can't have, but I wouldn't call it a tantrum. He's usually distracted by something else pretty quickly.

Yea ethan does it, he's almost 10 months, been doing if now for a couple of weeks now. I just ignore him when he has a tantrum, not gonna let him get his own way by having acting like that. I'm sure it'll pass when he can communicate better with me :)
