  • It sounds like she is testing you to see what kind of reaction you have when she does such things.

  • Yes babies that young can throw tantrums!! But it sounds more like she is just testing your patience. She's learning about things and just wants to see what kind of reaction she is going to get from you.

  • Sounds like she is testing you and seeing how far she can push you. My daughter did this with my mom all the time.
