For us, it was around 7 months.
I'm not sure if it really qualified as a "real tantrum", but it sure looked like one.
He'd want me to give him something, I wouldn't, and he'd totally freak out.
It was at it's worst around 13 months...but now, at 15 months, the tantrums seem to have gone "into remission" for the moment (for the most part).
My dd is now 10.5 months old and started throwing mini tantrums about a month ago. If she got ahold of something that she wasn't supposed to have and I took it away she will just lay down on the floor and cry and will not let me pick her up. Arches her back and fights me. Isn't easily redirected either. Very interesting. Makes me wonder what she will be like when she gets older.
2.5 year old dd is very mellow and reasonable. She has not has what I consider the typical tantrum of crying inconsolably and refusing to be touched or held over not getting her wish about something. She is a really mellow kid. I know is subject to change!
all of my girls started throwing tantrums (and by tantrum I mean I want that and you said no but I will scream until I get my way tantrums) around 12 months.
my middle child was always developmentally ahead and her brain saw what she was capable of and it droe her crazy when she couldn't do it. At 4 months she was crawling, crawled off thebed and threw a 12 hour fit until she figured out haw to crawl with the brace on
she is the only one who had frustratiion tantrums and they started around 3 or 4 months.
I think around the one year mark is when some people will see them. We haven't had any real tantrums yet (at 15 months). If DS gets kinda angry, it usually has another cause (tired/hungry/wet/poopy/etc)...so I usually offer to nurse him or change his diaper. This has worked so far. DS can be very spirited and very easy going all at the same time. Not much is off limits to him as well (except the stairs), so we rarely gets angry unless we don't let him go up and down the stairs all day when he's so inclined. We do take let him use the stairs at least 3 times a day, so I think that helps. Toddlers are wired to explore everything, so saying no to them a million times a day really bothers them. Of course, some kids will just tantrum.
