Re: Throwing tantrums to get food

My son is older now, but he did this too. Someone suggested we do baby sign with him and it really worked. If I had something like a soda, I'd just say no you can't have mine, are you thirsty (and sign thirsty) and then offer an appropriate drink. We taught him please and thank you, and he eventually got very good at signing please when he wanted something and then we could offer choices and see what he wanted. Communication really was key to getting the little fits at that age to stop. It may not work for every baby but it worked for mine. He was a happy little camper once he could tell us what he wanted.
