Lesson #5: Tantrums

Over the course of me blogging about being a mum, I will share my experiences as part of ‘my lessons learnt’ series.

When you get pregnant or become a mum/parent, you feel like you are the only one in the world who has just had a baby until the day you look for reassurance that you are doing the right thing. Be it advise from family, friends, the net, your health advisors…..you name it. That is when you realize that being a parent is NO JOKE! and you are not alone.

What have I learnt about baby tantrums?

NIP THEM IN THE BUD EARLY

My baby threw his first tantrum this week.

It is still funny when he throws one of his hissy fits, but the time has now come for me nip them in the bud before they get out of hand.

Rolling on the floor, minus kicking his legs are the order of the day. At the moment it’s when he is not sitting comfortably in his poof whilst having his milk. NO POOF, NO MILK!

At what point did he know this is how to grab our attention with ‘bad’ behaviour?

My friend (a fellow mum) always told me, “It only takes them once to learn.”

Has your little one thrown a tantrum? If so, what measures have you put in place so they don’t get out of hand?

EDIT: Just incase the above questions defeat you, @PastorWa may have just helped you with that dilemma here. Good thing to have come across it now. Nipping said baby characteristic will be a breeze interesting.
