Toddler Mood Swings...

My 23month old started this new thing where all she does is yell ma, ma, ma at everything and points. Now, when I say yell, I mean high pitched make you cringe yell. She doesn’t have a big vocabulary, but she used to walk over and say muk, or sippy, or shoe or whatever else she was able to say when she wanted something. Now she will just stand there yelling, and just point. She has been crying a lot more too. She also doesn’t like her older sisters touching or getting anywhere near her 2month old brother. I have no idea what’s going on or how to fix it. She has always been a go with the flow baby and happy, but now a day, she seems to be upset all the time. Help!

To add to this post, she is also getting more aggresive with her older sisters. She is super lovey on her brother, but she will go and push her sisters. Is that because they are not always around(they live with there mom) Maybe she is getting a single child complex? where everything is hers??? At first I thought maybe she is getting frustrated because we dont know what she is trying to tell us all the time... My sister in law keeps telling me she might be showing signs of autism. Im just not sure what to do.

I think she is just being a toddler. It really doesnt sound at ALL to me like autism! My child often has mood swings and yells for no reason. Sometimes he just cries and rants for no reason and then will stop in an instant. From what I have read, toddler have a really hard time expressing their emotions...even if they are really good talkers. and she may just be being territorial with the older girls because she wants to be "head honcho". hope that helps a little.
