It seems she's never going to come back. The tantrums , screams, bad behaviour and endless bad behaviour is killing me. I can't get her to go to sleep before 10pm since the new baby arrived, she jumps and clambers all over me whilst I'm feeding (despite having a breast feeding box which has new toys in for her to play it while I'm feeding), she refuses to do anything I ask her to d. I've instigated a rewards chart with stickers and that's not working. I'm exhausted from my DD1 not the baby. I don't know what to do, and the hardest part is the grief as I feel like I've lost my daughter. Where has my little girl gone.? Everyone says that a bigger age gap is better as they are more independent but I think it's harder. My DD1 refuses to go to prchoool, cries and screams all the way to preschool, tantrums adm she screams so loudly and with such anger and terror that I just cry. It absolutely breaks my heart. What have I done? We tried so hard to have this baby but in doing so I've lost my first child.... I'm resorting to putting her in her room all the time. I try to reward the good behaviour and not the bad, but I feel like I need jo frost super nanny. I'm really surprised that no ne has called docs my DD1 screams so much.

    If there's another mum out here with to been their second child please give me some tips.....I'm so upset and grief stricken.....
    I'm so sorry Gampa, I'm heartbroken for you, I hope you find a solution quickly XXX

    That's awful gampa and I really believe she is just testing you and she will be get over this phase. You say you don't want to resort to putting her in her room all the time but if she stays in there and gives you a but of a break I think that is an option you might need to consider until she is ready to behave better for you.

    When I say I like the age gap it's cause ds is sleeping in his bed all night, can feed himself and is toilet trained. Your not alone with the bad behaviour and tantrums , they can be so infuriating and embarrassing. Breath through each one she will be back you haven't lost her.

    Sorry things are tough Gampa, obviously I don't have children as yet so take my advice with a grain of salt but sounds like your daughter is having a hard time adjusting to having to share her mum and dad.

    Could you express and let hubby mind baby and take her out for an hour for some one on one time with mum? Hope things sort themselves out soon

    Gampa - im so sorry!
    I have a 2 year old, so a bit different. Eli has been acting out since I have been in hospital. his tantrums are like nothing i have ever seen before.
    the past 3 days, he has been back to himself. Im home more so I'm guessing that it was/is a phase?? Hoping it doesn't happen when I bring Ella home!
    I'm sorry I can't be more helpful but I really really hope you get your little girl back soon!
    We are here for you should you need to vent - don't hold back, thats what we are here for! xxx

    Gampa wish I had advice, I do believe she will come through it and you will have your sweet DD back.

    Oh darling big hugs I feel for you...I'm no expert but surely it's just a phase as even though you've obviously gone to lengths to get her new toys to play with whilst feeding etc she is probably grieving the loss of her mummy to new baby?? I really hope and pray you sort it all out soon and I'm sure you'll all come out fine the other end - big test and challenge for you...thinking of you xx
