    Default 8mths and recently taking to arching her back

    Hi all , is anyone else experiencing back arching. I know it can be a sign of reflux but I don't think it is reflex related. it seems to becoming out of frustration. especially if the bottle doesn't come on time, or if I take something away. this is very recent like the last two weeks. Sometimes in the morning or after a nap if I don't get her out of her sleep bag quick she has a paddy and arches. Im think it is just a behaviour thing and she is learning very early how to have a tantrum. IF so I have my work cut out. my first born was a very easy baby. She is good for the most of the time unless I don't meet her demands. She is also delayed in her rolling and I am now doing exercises with a physio but she won't cooperate I don't know how I am going to break the arching back issue if she is just having a wobble about not wanting to do it. It also happens now when she is tired. Any thoughts. HELP

    Default 8mths and recently taking to arching her back

    DS used to chuck a wobbly and arch his back around that age.
    I figured it was just him being frustrated about not being able to move himself.
    Not long after he started army crawling and it stopped.

    If your dd is delayed in her movement there's a good chance it might be the same thing.

    Also our doc said that sometimes it happens when kids are close to a developmental growth spurt.

    We just ignored it and tried to make everything as calm and as least upsetting to him as we could.

    Probably not much help sorry, but I hope you can sort it out soon

    my dd 18mths still arches her back when she doesnt want to do something - like getting into her car seat, getting picked up ect.
    When she's had enough of her meal, she will flip her head back and arch her back.
    Im pretty sure its just behaviour related. DD had reflux and i thought thats why she arched her back as a bub but she still does it now. Mainly when she is tired. Not much i do about it, sorry im not much help!
    I dont know how delayed your child is on her movement milestones but dd only just started walking now at 18mths and crawled at 10mths. Sat up at 9mths. I was told she was fine and "normal for her" i dont think its a physiological issue, the arching back thing.

    My 8 month old dd does this when she doesn't want a nappy on or her hair tied up (has hair way past her eyes)...she's completely mobile and doesn't like to be stopped on one of her adventures *sigh*
