My daughter was not an easy baby, she had colic and (has) asthma. I was often up with her at night for hours because of it. However, she never had an actual bad attitude. She normally has a very mellow, easy going feel about her. Except for her random three year old moments she is a very sweet, caring and compassionate little girl. The first time I ever had to give her a time out was when she was 26 months old.
With my son though... things seem a little different. He had heart issues when he was born and also had GERD but seemed like he might be even more laid back then my daughter. I think I was wrong...
He is very demanding! Not in normal baby need's mommy way. More in a bad attitude sorta way. He can be very sweet but then you do something he doesn't exactly care for he smacks at you and gives you this, "And you better not do it again!" kinda look. He huffs and puffs and screams at you while making this very angry face. He is only nine months and has such a bossy attitude!
I have actually had to stick him in "time out" (the playpen) a few times this week for him to cool off. I made sure everything was taken care of with him and tried to "reason" (comfort) the little guy but that only makes him angrier.Any other parents experience there nine month old have a bad attitude? Ever have to stick them in "time out"?
I know he look's like such an angel, doesn't he?
