Buddha Mama

I hand him my phone. Stops him in his tracks every time.


I have the same problem with my youngest. Plus the added joy that lately she's been waking in the middle of the night in the throes of a temper tantrum. It's not a night terror, she's definitely awake. But she doesn't want to be held or comforted. She doesn't want lovey or pacifier. She'll throw them across the room and try to rip our faces off if we try to pick her up. If I'm there she screams for Daddy, if he's there she screams for me, if we're both there she just screams NO. Her daytime tantrums are similar.

What works best is to calmly mostly ignore her. Interaction seems to fuel things. Every few minutes I'll quietly offer her lovey, pacifier or to hold her. If she screams no I'll say okay and walk away and try again 5 minutes later (more like 10 or 15 mins later when it's 2am). During daytime I will turn on a movie she likes hoping it will get her attention at some point. Sometimes I'll just put her lovey or paci near her without pointing them out, she takes them much better if it seems to be her idea not mine.

I can deal with the daytime stuff but our 3rd baby is due in less than 2 months. The middle of the night crap needs to stop yesterday.


I'm with Katherine. My 2-year-old occasionally wakes up from naps crying and all upset. She doesn't want me anywhere near her, but she doesn't want me NOT near her. I can't do anything to make her happy. My best bet is to "ignore" her and do something that she wants in on. I might call Dad at work on speakerphone and inevitably she wants to talk to him too. Or I'll flip on the tv and she'll stop, start watching, then request I change from "Mommy's show" to her show. I don't do that move unless I'm willing to let her watch a half-hour show though. I don't think there is anything to say or do when she's in that funk to get her out, she just needs to calm down on her own.
