My 8 month old daughter has just started throwing "temper tantrums" I will try to set her down and she will lock her legs and back when I try to set her down, so I will just lay her on the floor and she will scream and cry and after a minute of two I will pick her up and go back to hold her...not get me wrong I LOVE holding her and I lave that she likes to cuddle but there are times when I can't get anything done because of it. She is also a very bad napper. She is very use to being cuddled to go to sleep. I will hold her until she is asleep and then I will try to put her down but she will only sleep for 20 minutes then she will wake up screaming so I will pick her back up and hold her until she goes back to sleep and I will hold her until she wakes up because it's the only way to get her to stay asleep for longer then 20 minutes but again I don't get anything done. She sleeps great at night but I think it's because she is so tired from not sleeping during the day.
Does anyone have advice on how to get her to nap long on her own?
How do I handle the tantrums without being to hard on her?
