The Nemours Foundation notes that any of the following may trigger a baby temper tantrum:
  • Fatigue or discomfort.
  • Lack of attention.
  • Frustration.
  • The need for control and independence.
  • Wanting something they can't have.
From personal experience, I'm going to suggest you watch out for the temper tantrum triggers below as well...
  • What you're eating or drinking while breastfeeding can cause a tantrum.
  • Less vocal babies or late talkers may lash out with a tantrum because you can't understand them. This is when baby sign language can come in handy.
  • Patience is hard for babies and can make them explode into tantrum world. Teach patience from the start to help avoid this.
  • Bad clothing can really irk a baby. Bad clothing for some babies is, of course different from bad clothing for other babies. My son, for example, hated hats with a passion. Some babies hate socks. Avoid bad clothing when possible.
  • Over-stimulation is a big tantrum issue for babies. Babies do need some downtime too, just like adults.
  • Your baby might have colic.
