So far so good with my little one. He throws tantrums now and then, but is a pretty easy baby. My older ones however...... UGH!! They were little monsters (and I use that in a loving way:)) when they were toddlers. I would put them in their rooms (they had their own), and take my own time out. Just long enough to cry for a minute and catch my breath.
When we were in public and they started acting up, they got ONE warning. Then we left. I have left several carts full of stuff sitting in WalMart! lol.... To this day, they do not act up when we are out.
Also, make sure you carve out some time for you. Either alone, with your DH, or with some girlfriends. You need time to refuel and hang out with grown ups!
