comment What are some possible ways to deal with night-time tantrums
@Amanda - We never sought any professional diagnosis on this. All the information available says its quite normal, that they grow out of it, and not to worry too much. Im pleased to say in our case that was right. Now approaching 5, my little one vary rarely does this now. Occasionally, but really not often. If you're really worried see a doctor (as always), otherwise it might take time but your daughter will simply grow out of it.

comment 7 year old boy who uses bad language
was "Year old" meant to read "7 year old" (as per title)? Id be impressed if your year old was using any language :)

comment How to remove Toddler's attraction for iPhone /iPad?
This works great until your 2 year old learns to watch you unlock your ipad and can remember the code. I speak from experience :|

I think you could be right, and its something weve seriously been considering too. I think we're going to change her bed to a normal single froma toddler bed. I'll report back if it makes any difference.

comment Silicone bottle nipple, usually has a whitish film after washing and drying? Why is this the case?
I'd concur with the scale idea. I live in a very hard water area and frequently see the same thing on bottles & teats.

The over-tired thing has legs. She's been refusing to go to sleep at usual bedtime for the last few weeks and the tantrums have been almost nightly. Last night she went to sleep at usual bedtime (7:30 ish) and slept all night.

@Meg: Yes thanks for the additions. She remembers it all in the morning. As I mentioned, she even seems to exhibit remorse. She knows it's wrong when she is in "rational awake mode" but can't be reasoned with when in "irrational half asleep mode". On the second edit, I totally know this is not uncommon. Just having a hard time knowing the best way to deal with it.

Thanks for the link, helpful but works to confirm that this is not night terrors. 1) She doesn't wake quickly with a scream 2) She does remember the episode ("I was a naughty girl last night, I work mummy and daddy") 3) She often doesn't seem to be awake, but still asleep (or at least sort of half way between).
