I feel like I could practically take care of baby Jack with my hands tied behind my back. He is so laid back, sleeps most of the time... a complete joy. My DD on the other hand has really changed lately. She is so jealous of Jack and wants to be held all the time and let me tell you about the tantrums. She really not even two yet and the tantrums have come on FULL force. And this is pretty much since the baby has come. She is defiant about EVERYTHING! We deal with like at least 10 tantrums if not more every day. I have tried to give her as much individual attention as I can, but I think she's just taking to the change really hard. I've tried different approaches to the defiance, but nothing seems to work. Do any BTDT mommies have suggestions for helping my DD? I really want my happy girl back again. Will she come out of this eventually?

I'm sorry and yes going through the same thing. It's all day long of screaming or crying. I have tried so many things so I'm no help I just want to hide in my room by the end if the day. I hope it ends soon bc I'm home by myself and it's so hard with lack of sleep.

I'm with both of you, except mine is a four year old boy. Somedays I think it's getting better, but he still doesn't seem like the same sweet, mild mannered boy I had.

Sorry, no ideas to give - but I'd be willing to take some!

I'm so sorry for you too. WE are also dealing with all out screaming all throughout the day. And I feel the same way. Just totally defeated by the end of the day. I feel like such a bad parent to her right now. I hope someone has some advice for us.

Sorry honey. I really hope time is the cure here if there isn't much we can do in the mean time.

Yep, yep, and yep! Bella is not jealous but she is just a total diva! We are going though the terrible twos big time and she is so much harder to deal with than Chloe at this point.
