However, developmentally, at three months old, a baby is not capable of throwing a "tantrum." It is not about wants, but rather necessity, and a baby does need face-to-face time to develop. I appreciate that it is the difficulty of every mother to be able to provide this each and every time, but at three months old, I don't think it is at risk of becoming "habit" any more than crying for food or sleep is "habit."


My baby girl just turned 5 months old and she already throws temper tantrums. when she's sleepy she pinches and screams and kicks until she falls asleep. When shes done with her bottle or whatever shes playing with she throws it across the room!
