LITERALLY with toys, or his hands. is this a phase??!?!? He will start throwing tantrums if he doesn't get his way. I won't let him beat on the walls, eat wires, hell crawl off the damn bed. If I tell him its not nice, he hits harder or throws a toy. Who knew a 7month could pack a hit?! I was told to pop his hands but of course I dont think that's the way to go, although I have been tempted when he head butted me and busted my lip. This boy is dangerous. Were/Are your LOs hitting this early? And if so, how the hell did you get them to stop?!

Yes. He started throwing toys and hitting. We are still working on it and he is 2. I take away the toy and do a timeout but I don't know if that will work for one so young. Maybe taking the toy away.

Oh wow, at first I was like "oh hell no, if hes not SNs, beat his ass" But then I saw hes only 7 months. Thats crazy! Ive never seen a 7 month old do something like that so I have no advice, sorry. Although I do remember when my middle one was about 1 a firm "No!" would work. Good Luck!

Yep its normal

Just hold his hands together and in a  stern voice tell him "NO Hitting". It will take a while and you have to be consistent with it every time he does it.

When he throws a toy, take the toy and put it up for a few days or so.

It is a phase and you have two options. You can handle it gently and baby him and have it turn into a habit or you can be firm and stern and make sure he stops quickly. This is the point where you make your authority known. It hurts to have to discipline your baby, but if you don't you'll regret it in the long run. Good luck.

I normally take the toys which leads him to the tantrum. growling and hitting lol while hitting he laughs. pretty sure timeouts won't work because he wont understand .

This may sound mean but when he throws the tantrum just walk away and ignore it. Timeouts definitely won't work at his age but maybe ignoring the tantrum will. I wish you luck. Hopefully it is just a phase.

I have no idea why I didn't think to hold his hands together. I normally take the toys but probably cave in giving it back because its his "favorite" . (the main one he crawls too)
