My son started throwing himself back for the heck of it...he thinks its hilarious!!! He hasnt started doing it out of a tantrum yet, but i dont think its too far ahead because he just started crying/screaming if he doesnt get his way. He just turned one on march 19th. I'm glad others are experiencing this because it can get a little overwhelming at times because i dont want to feel like im spoiling my child. I try to just walk away but its so hard not to give him what he wants when i see his little sad face. But when he throws himself backwards its like a backwards belly flop. He's hit his head on his crib a few times. He will have to learn that things that he does can hurt him =)

My daughter does the same thing. When she is mad or doesn't get her way. If she hears "no". It's a tantrum. I reccommend the foam puzzle floors. They are awesome and won't hurt them too much when they do this. Help me, because we have tile, not carpet!

My daughter started doing it as well, but the first tantrum she had was when she was 0nly about 9 months old! and now she goes forward instead of back and lies there and cries. I walk away and she usually stops and if she doesnt I put her in her crib and shut the door until shes stops, usually about 5 minutes! lol. They all hate being told no, but they need to leanr that whining and crying isnt going to get them their own way lol

i know how you feel! my son has such a temper, and he just turned 1 not even 2 weeks ago!! if he doesn't get his way, he will bang his had on whatever is in front of him! it's a little unsettling, but i guess if it starts to hurt he will quit! i guess to help your daughter, just make sure she's in a place where she can't hurt herself, and then let her go. she will eventually learn that tantrums won't get her what she wants!

Liesl;

I can totally relate to how you react. My daughter, also born on 3/15/10 started doing this except she will roll to her belly and cry. I just tell her to finish and come see me when she is done. Then I walk out of the room. She stops quickly and comes to find me with the look of 'I sorry'. I have no idea why this started, but I am hoping by ignoring it, that she will stop.

My son, who turned 1 on the 15th March, started throwing "tantrums" about a week or so ago. If he doesn't get his way, he drops onto his bottom, and throws his body forward, with his head lying on the ground and just cries. I have decided to ignore this behaviour, in the hopes that he will realise that he will not get attention (or his own way) by performing like this. I'm not sure that it can be stopped, as I would love to know how to stop my son from doing this. I notice that if I ignore him and walk away, he will stop crying after about a minute or so, when he realises i'm no longer there, then he will come and look for me.

Tantrums! My son does it too, when he does it, I leave him on the floor and just walk away. I found that it helps, because he stops screaming and goes on playing after being ignored...

Its just something they do, my son does it as well, and I help him to the floor and walk away.
It is a way they communicate letting us know they are not happy with whatever is going on

My son does this when he gets mad or is told no. Its a tantrum and they usually tell you to ignore this behavior. That's what I do with my son and usually he stops crying and crawls into my lap.
