When I hear about toddlers that throw huge tantrums my first question to myself is how are they sleeping? A toddler needs at least 12 hours a day of sleep between nap and night time sleep--some (like my daughter) need more. If my daughter hasn't slept well she will have an inconsolable melt down over random little things, like not being able to pull a zipper 100% closed or her shoes not being right in front of her when she decides she wants them.

Hopefully it's something "simple" like that rather than a reaction to birth trauma. I say "simple" because we moms know it's not simple to get our children to sleep more when they fight it.
