Can my 7 month old be having temper tantrums?When he wants something he doesn't just get fussy anymore. He just screams loudly and suddenly.
I agree that his : pediatrician needs to see him & a video of an episode. Learned behaviors typically start at 6 months, so he can have learned that his shriek gets instant attention, but you can't ignore it till you know he's ok. If ok, ignore it consistently till he gives it up. Intermittently reinforcing it makes it last longer. Attend to him while he's happy. with phrases like, " Up? You want up?" & a smile. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

It hurts!: Something called bubble bath urethritis -- tender inflammation of the sensitive lining where urine exits, caused by bubble bath or bath soaps w/ fragrances or other chemicals -- is a common cause. Ouch! another possibility is a urinary tract infection, especially if other symptoms. A urine test can check for this. Utis are more common in boy babies.

My 2 year old son gets very angry when he doesn't get his way. He yells throws things and sometimes he talks to himself. Should i be conconcerned?
Temper tantrums: If your child has otherwise developed normally, temper tantrums are a very immature way toddlers asserts their independence and will. It will pass. The trick is not engaging in an argument with a 2 year old, changing his activity and distracting him work. They are also pushing limits. Be consistent so he eventually knows that when you say "no" it does not mean maybe. Firm loving limit setting. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

When to get checked: This is a time to get your baby checked. Okay to go see pediatrician or minor er and ask for an xray and tell them why. Babies have soft bones and laxity to their joints.

My 18month old always throw up when she cries, in the middle of her tantrums she cries & scream like crazy if i say no! she cries cough & throw up;why?
Positive or negative: attention reinforces behaviors. Consistently ignoring behaviors makes them stop after 1st getting worse. When she tantrums, carry her from behind to a time-out spot on a washable surface. Don't talk, make eye contract or act upset. Repeat till she stays put. Set a timer for 1 ½ minutes, then carry her from behind to where it started & talk to her calmly. Buy Little People for $12 on Amazon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
