normal behaviour for 9-10 month old or should i be worried?


My LO has always been a little on the grumpy side but just in the last few days she's started throwing these massive tantrums where she will throw herself backwards dramatically and scream like something possessed. She tends to do it when I try to sit her on the floor (a couple of times she's done it so fast I couldn't catch her and she's bumped her head off the floor! )

At first I thought maybe it was hurting to sit down but now I'm not sure as she's starting to do it when I take things off her, wipe her face, dress her, get her out of the bath or even when I stop cuddling her n try to put her down. So that's why I think they might be tantrums

She also seems desperate to be pulled up to standing so I wonder if its frustration a bit, but as soon as I stand her up she gets annoyed that she can't do it and throws herself about again!

Any ideas? Very confused lol

my 10 month old has also started having tantrums although not quite as extreme as yours! He tends to do his when he wants something but can't reach it so again i think it's his frustration. I hope they grow out of it soon.

Me too, I've just finished bathing her and she screamed and writhed around the whole time I was drying her. God knows what my neighbours must think!

My baby has been doing this off and on since around 9 months! She just goes through these 'No!' phases where she won't go in her stroller, her highchair, or even her cot. Lately she's been doing it when I get her dressed or undressed. She kicks up a massive fuss and as soon as I'm done she forgets all about it.

Aidan did this at that age it's totally normal hun they are just starting to get little personalities and express themselves. They can't tell you whats wrong so they tend to throw tantrums through frustration x

Yep! We are going through this as well. Pleased to see it's not just my baby that does this hahah!

Usually during nappy changes or when I lie him down after a bath! He seems happies after a bath if I let him stand and hold on to the bath while I dry and dress him but I haven't worked out how to get nappy on with his standing yet so we have a real strop then!

Lol I can relate, I need to figure out how to undo her nappy while she's sitting up because she screams when I lie her down!

Thanks girls, I'm so glad its not just my baby doing this.

Any idea how long it lasts? Or is this how she's gonna be from now on lol

We are going through this as well! If I put her on the floor because I need two hands for a second, or if I put her down for a nappy change or if I take away something that's dangerous for her to play with.

I guess it's just frustration as they have no other way to express their emotions!

My LO's throwing mini-tantrums aswell! I was wondering if this was normal too as I didn't think the tantrums started until they were much older & it seems to be from the above comments (thank goodness as I was beginning to think that I was raising a little beastie). My LO has hers when I try to dress her/put things over her head, when I try to lay her down to change her nappy, when her yoghurt runs out & when I go to put her down after I've been holding her. She doesn't throw her mini-strops on every occasion but they seem to be stepping up in frequency. Today when she's started, I've turned my head/focus away from her & only regained eye contact when she's calmed & that seems to have worked so that could be worth a try.

I'd be interested in knowing if this is just a phase or whether she's started as she means to go on too. Until then, when she throws her little strops tomorrow, I'll be thinking of you all too, x
