Who is This Baby???

I dont know if my sweet baby is teething, or just going through a new stage but DANG he has been bratty lately. He was always so easy going but now he is grunting, squealing and screaming louder than you can imagine to communicate his very strong opinions. He has graduated from a Dino-baby to a CAVEMAN. (Violently) Slinging that sippy cup, Throwing food from his tray... 
Here is a good sample clip, in case you need visual aid! We started behavior boot camp today and I have just started laying him down in the floor and ignoring his tantrums and as you can see he works at it for a minute but once he loses his audience he just gets up and goes off and plays like it never happened.


PS This little fit is at 6AM! I know... you are all so jealous of spending 6 am this way....

Ha - yeah, sounds familiar. While Bennett is behind the curve on some things - I am not certain he is when it comes to throwing fits. He goes from 0 to 100 in no time, and the only thing I know to do is remove him from the situation but ignore the behavior! Let me know any advice you have for a six month old tantrum. He really only does it if he would like to be moved from one play station to another - so I think part of it is frustration with not being able to move freely.

NOT FUN!
I don't know if it's a stage or teething or a combo......

Ben screams too. And throws tantrums. We ignore like you are and he gets over it. But, it's also his way of communicating, so we are trying to find a balance.
When he throws food we take it away and discipline. If he throws his cup, we make him pick it up. Takes ALOT of patience! There a stage they go through where they are testing you. (so I've read...) Ben will do something he knows he's not suppose to and look right us and smile. It's so hard not to laugh or smile back!

Let me know if you figure it out.

Oh good Lord. Welcome to the club of heinous-ness. I do not like this stage. Unforch, it lasts for AWHILE as we are still going through it. You are doing awesome though! Just ignore it. He will get the message!
