  • Its not a temper tantrum, its just his way of trying to convey his feelings to you. He can talk so he screams to say, "mom I'm mad, I'm tired, I'm hungry, ect"

    Just cuddle him close and try to satisfy his needs as best you can. You cant spoil a 4 month old. ;)

  • Anytime Ethan (he is 6months old) does that I just stop what I'm doing and wait for him to stop. When he see's me not reacting and just sitting there he stops. I don't whip him b/c he wont understand. Like I said I just stop what I am doing and tell him ok when your done we will continue, but until then I'm just gonna wait for you to calm down. I think the longest I've had to wait was 5 min.

  • yea i agree with other ladies he is just trying to get your attention because he needs something , to be picked up, to be burped ,to play , to eat , or just because he is tired .

  • OMG! At 4 months old it's NOT a temper tantrum. It's you baby's way of letting you know he needs something. Don't ignore it like one poster said to do.
