Copingwith a Big Change

Toddlers like routine. So a big change in their lives or yours—a new baby, moving into a new house or bed, starting childcare, etc.—can be stressful for them.

Because they don’t yet know the words to express their feelings, toddlers reveal their stress by acting out—fussing or whining more than usual, having tantrums or lashing out physically.

When change is afoot in your toddler’s life, spend more cuddling time with him. Allow him to regress a bit. He’ll start acting more like himself as he grows accustomed to the change.
