So, just in the past month, Berlyn has been throwing these tantrums. It typically happens after we tell her "no," or take something away from her that she shouldn't have. She will fling her whole body backwards (in this picture I had to support her upper body until she touched the floor otherwise she would have busted her head open... so dramatic), and then she will cry/whine. At her one year check-up, we addressed this with her pediatrician and he told us just to "leave the room" when she threw a tantrum and that is EXACTLY what we have been doing. It seems to be working, because she will quit whining as soon as we walk away, but I still don't want her to grow into being a bratty little girl!!
Berlyn is the sweetest, happiest, smartest baby, and I hope this is just a phase she is going through, but I can't help but wonder whether she will do this all the time or what?! Does anyone else's baby do this? How do you deal with it?! Help!
