    Default Where's my beautiful boy gone....

    My 25 month old ds is such a bright, happy and funny little boy. He is easy to reason with and as long as he understands a situation is is very settled. On Sunday he through a massive tantrum about going to sleep with spitting , biting throwing things like nothing I've ever seen. Since Sunday we've had 6-7 of these day !!! I'm 8 weeks pregnant and totally at my wits end. We haven't changed anything in our lifestyle or approach to him. Is this just a stage Or something more ? Bedtime is usually a story, kiss and light off with the door open. Tonight he screamed hit, spat and dry wreached for 45 mins all the while I'm trying to calm him. Any advice ?

    Any advice ?
    I have had something similar happen to my one. Totally out of the blue and totally out of character. I am not a doctor so I will not begin to administer any advice but I would suggest that you have a blood test done.

    What's wrong with grapes? My DS eats about a million a day (and he has tantrums too!)

    Subscribing to hear the problem with grapes too - we love them in this household but deal with concurrent terrible twos and effing fours

    Well it's not grapes for me, he's been eating them all his life. No new foods that I can think off.

    Whooooo yes. Grapes are a no no here for DS2. Also toothpaste and Vegemite. All high is salicylates. He gets addicted and has huge meltdowns
    Anyway.. I digress from the OP, but it definitely sounds food related to be so sudden and out of character.
    Had you been to a party/family BBQ etc etc on that day..?

    My boy is the same age and I swear just entered that phase too. I always put it down to the inevitable and that he tried a tantrum and got a reaction so he's trying a few more? I dunno though - I just figured they all go thru stages of needing to test and find boundaries. I think they go from being babies to more like little kids whose brains and thoughts are more developed and along the lines of things such as 'hmmm I know mum and dad read me a book, kiss me as out me in my cot every night and then I go to sleep, but hey - what if I don't go to sleep, what if I stay up, or scream?'. And then sometimes things can spiral temporarily out f control because they scream or tantrum or whatever and then realise that they don't actually like that feeling an don't feel in control and then it's just scary for them. Anyway - I'm just a mum and that's just my thoughts.

    Just normal toothpaste. We just supervise VERY diligently and only put a tiny pea size amount. As long as he not actually ingesting it he's fine.
    We also have to keep it locked away as he will sneak in and just eat a tube. : /
