I know I am over-reacting (because that is what I do) and this is going to sound really ridiculous, but is it possible for a 6-month-old to already show signs of no coping skills (or the lack thereof)? OMG - it sounds even more ridiculous now that it's out in the open as opposed to the question flowing repeatedly in my head (:::wants to hit backspace key so bad:::).
Seriously, though, what is the deal with this little one getting SO frustrated over the smallest things?
1. Her toy was in front of her, but she couldn't reach it - freaked out.
2. She couldn't get a ball into her mouth because it was too big - really freaked out.
3. Picked up a plastic ring and, well... - REALLY, REALLY, REALLY freaked out.
I've googled "Baby Coping Skills" and it's probably the first time in my lifetime that I can barely find any topics. That should ease my mind, right? No. I still need answers. Please.
That's your cue...please email me or post your comments! What's your experience with babies getting frustrated like this? I'm assuming it's normal, but I need some reassurance, please!
