My son is 19 months old. When he's crabby, its bad. Screaming, throwing himself on the floor, throws things or even food from high chair... I don't get where he gets it from because our family environment is NOT like this at all! He's a good baby in general but he can be a beast. What are some tips??? When he's throwing a fit I ignore him. If he gets bad enough I'll put him in his crib and let him cry it out. Is that bad? I don't want to give him a reaction either good or bad. Its getting old....

Yes most definitely. He sleeps about 8-10 hours a night. And naps about 2-3 hours a day.

No advice, sorry. But I hope it gets better soon!

It could be anything or nothing at all causing it.

Possible allergy to something he eats, growing pains...like I said it could be anything.

Have you tried to calm him, I didnt see you mention that.

I'm sorry. It's so difficult when they act like that. It could be anything.

I'm not sure. It cold be anything but I think most likely it is just a phase. Early terrible twos? I have four boys and I've them all act like that before. Good luck. :-)

I've been there too and although it may not seem like ignoring his reactions is working, I think it's the most effective way to get the behaviors to stop. Be consistent. Don't give in and don't give up!

He's 19 months, it doesn't matter what your family environment is, he's entering the "terrible twos" and is going to throw tantrums, etc as he asserts himself and learns what he does/doesn't like or want.

I think putting him in his crib until he calms down is great (unless he can climb out, lol).

I have tried to calm him. Sometimes it works but most of the time it doesn't.

Maybe try to get his attention an a toy or play a game with him, so he will forget what he was having a hissy fit over.

Peek-a-boo usually worked on my boys.
