OMG I cant take the whining

We all have those things our babes do that get under our skin...

Well, my almost one year old has discovered whining. It drives me nuts. She just sits there and whines, seemingly for no good reason! I think its a new emotion or action she has discovered, and I think she knows that it just gets me.
I dont want to explode at her, she is still a baby. How can I get myself to not let her whining get to me?

Re: OMG I cant take the whining

Good luck! I don't think there is a way to get the whining to stop, or not let it get to you, it's kinda like hearing someone click a pen over and over, or scratch a Chalkboard. lol It doesn't bother them a bit but it drives you nuts.

Only suggestions i got is to try and get her involved in something that would make the whining stop for awhile. What does she like to do? anything? I'm trying to think back to when miranda was that age. It's hard to entertian that age. lol

Remember she whines because that tone gets a response from you. This is why children whine in the first place. just simple talking or throwing toys or whatever doesn't get that same response as that new neat sound she can make does. lol Like a Tantrum, I try to ignore it. I know how hard that is to do.. that's why i try to get her involved in something else.

However.. i have been known to Blow up Every once in awhile. Very stressful times.

Good luck!

Re: OMG I cant take the whining

Can I tell you the same thing I tell DH when he complains about the kids? "You signed up for it, too!"
Other than redirection or ignoring her I have NO idea. My son never did that. She's probably just discovering different things her body can do, I hope this one passes fast for you!

Re: OMG I cant take the whining

Thanks mamas

I am not upset with her, nor do I honestly expect it to stop. She is just being a baby, doing what she is supposed to do. I am just trying to figure out a way so that it doesnt make me crazy! LOL!

Re: OMG I cant take the whining

She probably thinks it's like a magic trick: "I do some whining, and then Mommy starts turning red and gets annoyed! Cool! I'm the most powerful baby ever!!"

Ain't parenting great?
