My son will be one year old next week. Up until the last two weeks, he has been the easiest, happy-go lucky child imaginable. He sleeps well, he eats everything, he is always giggling and smiling, he loves people and is social. The last two weeks this has changed, especially the last two days when he has cried and gotten angry all throughout the day. I can't figure it out. He has never had a temper before, and now he deliberately throws things, hits things, hits my husband and myself when he is not getting his way. What gives? I don't know what to do. If he (intentionally) bites or hits me while nursing, I say "Ouch" and disconnect but this makes him so angry he scrunches up his face and hits me hard. If he is going for something that is dangerous (like trying to stick his hand in the VCR) and I gently say No and move him away he pounds on the floor and screams, and then hits me. If he wants my computer or the book I am reading and I move it away from him, he hits at it or tries to rip the pages out.
Seriously it is like my angel baby has been replaced by someone with a temperament completely contrary to the way he was previously. I don't know how to get him to stop since everything just makes him more angry.
