    Default Bub girl does this shaky tense up thing when she's cranky....

    My little girl (3.5yo) started this thing recently when, if she doesn't get what she wants, just start clenching up everything.
    Literally everything. It's freakin' the missus out since it look like she's in a fit but I know she's not (she's just been naughty).
    I don't see any harm but I'd thought asking would be better then assuming.....


    There's also one more question, but I can't really put it in a subject header and there's no tasteful way for me to put it.
    The nurse was going to tell me how to deal with it later but I give up, I need to know now....
    I've got a little boy as well, sometimes when I change him, he's got a boner. How do I deal with that. It's not gonna hurt him if I tuck his little fella in as I'm changing him I hope.


    Cheerio

    Your little girl is using tensing up as a way to deal with her emotions.

    The little boy - just tuck it in. Perfectly normal thing and it won't hurt them.

    Thanks for that.
    I figured that much and normally calm her down and tell her that's naughty (usual response: no daddy naughty!)
    Just worried that it might have some sort of long term thing....
    With bubby boy's boner.... glad to hear it... I was worried I was gonna break something.... when I first saw it, my response was....

    😂😂😂 it's a bit shocking when your baby boy first greets you with one! But yes, just tuck down.
