15 month old throwing fits lately? Common for this age?

My 15 month old son has recently become very crabby. He throws fits at least once or twice a day for no apparent reason. He's not had much of an appetite, especially at dinner, and it has been really tough to get him to go to sleep lately. No teeth seem to be trying to come in, and he isn't sick or anything like that. I was thinking a growth spurt maybe? Has anyone else dealt with this around this age?

  • Its very common especially with children who can't express what they want with words so that mommy can understand. Also i have read online that fit throwing is actually a way for children to lern self independence. So its actually a good thing your lo throw when my 22 month old does it hard for me to remember that lol as sure it is for you while a fit is happening but try to while it happening. The best way to get a fit to stop is to ignore it. Once they see that no one is paying attention the fit stops almost immediately. Good luck

  • Yup! Mine is 18 months but he has been doing it since about 14m maybe? They have only gotten worse! I hate how he throws himself backwards while he is doing it and hits his head on the floor! I have gotten to the point where I just slowly lay him back myself and then walk away to let me scream and kick all by his lonesome lol
