Tips for Preventing Tantrums

When a baby has a meltdown, it is not fun to deal with.  The baby can cry uncontrollably for simple, everyday tasks such as being placed in a carseat, eating their meal, putting a diaper on, etc.  The first step in dealing with a baby’s tantrum is to understand what is causing your little one to cry.  This article from provides 16 ways in which you can respond to your child’s tantrum:

  • Try ignoring the situation
  • Handle aggressive behavior immediately
  • Refrain from yelling
  • Let your child be angry
  • In some cases, give in to the tantrum
  • Rely on brief, easy commands
  • Create a distraction
  • Give them a hug
  • Help undo frustration
  • Move locations during public tantrums
  • Prepare for potential temper tantrums
  • Give advance warning
  • Laugh it off
  • Stick with your demands
  • Move on right away

              It is always best to take a proactive approach towards these tantrums by massaging your baby on a regular basis.  Baby Mantra’s Calming Massage Oil is encouraged to be applied and gently rubbed on a child’s skin after bath time; couple this with soft, soothing music to help the baby relax. 

              In extreme cases where your baby is not able to pay attention to one task and cannot sit for a long time, you should check with your doctor if your child may be showing early signs of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder).
