How do you deal with them right now? What are the tantrums typically about?

With Melody it's easy. Her tantrums are basically just clenched fists and one loud scream and we just smile at her and she smiles back and resumes what she was doing. My oldest we usually try to ignore them, if that doesn't work tickling her usually does or asking her whats wrong or try to get her to play with Melody to distract her. If it gets worse we put her in her room til she calms down. Her tantrums are throwing things, yelling or smacking things or herself on the head.

Connor doesn't have major tantrums (yet?) but he gets pretty mad when he can't have what he wants or do what he wants. Mostly he yells and cries. I calmly tell him very simply why he can't have it and try redirecting him. If that doesn't work I pick him up and give him some cuddles or breastfeed him and that usually does the trick. It's harder when he does it when I'm crunched for time, like getting DD ready for school so sometimes he just has to deal, but I try giving him something to distract him if possible. Snacks work great.

Adalyn has small tantrums - She usually just sits on the floor and cries. Occasionally she'll have a tantrum over wanting to nurse or wanting on the couch after I've cut her off/kicked her off for not nursing nicely or not sitting on the couch (she likes to climb all over).

When she is throwing a fit on the floor - I just ignore it. And laugh a little inside, because seriously child?! Haha. When she's throwing a fit about being on the couch or wanting to nurse - I am usually fighting with her to stay down. In order to get it to stop, I usually have to distract her with a snack or drink. It doesn't always work, but I try.

Matthews are usually because we take something away that he shouldn't be playing with or if we put him in his playpen and he doesn't want to be in there or when he climbs on the coffee table lol. I don't give in, I just let him cry or will try giving him something else to distract him

Cam's tend to be because he has something he's not supposed to, or he wants something he can't reach, or he's tired.

Cuddles or a distraction with a snack work most of the time.

Kyah's tantrums consist of crying and sometimes throwing our phones, lol. They aren't that bad so far. It is usually due to not getting something she wants. I usually give her something else to distract her and if that doesn't work I will pick her up and cuddle her. If all else fails, nursing her always works!
