  • This will pass, if she has a fit, just walk over her and ignore it. Don't give it too much attention. My son still has days where he will do this with me and not with Daddy. They act different with their mommy.

  • Welcome to toddlerhood! LOL. My son has these times too, he's 16 months. Don't hold her all the time because that encoureges it. Hold her when you know she NEEDS to be held. Have no tolerance for the tantrums. Landon gets a time out for tantrums (1 minute), and after that he is perfectly fine! Good luck mama, it's just a stage!
