Toddler Anxiety Issues

I must have the only two year old in the world who can cry so long and so hard that he gives himself a nosebleed. Or starts hyperventilating. Anyone else have anything similar?

Whoa! Have you talked to his doctor about this! It sounds very serious that he's not adjusting well to the baby and maybe he/she can help you get some new ideas because sorry but i dont know how i would deal witha kid taht can't talk yet. (which is why I demandd a +2 year spacing for my kids lol) so maybe the doc will have somehting useful to help Khalid. Yikes hyperventalating can be scary.

Assalamu Alaikum hon, i have just had a blog reading sesh for the first time in months.
I know you're not worried about Khalid not talking but id like to put my '2 penneth worth in' anyways. I reckon hes not talking because hes so busy taking in all the languages around him, when he does talk its gonna be multi lingual. And regarding the temper tantrums, i would be inclined to let him get on with it for a good 20 mins, just completely ignore it as if you can't even hear him(easier said then done, i know)then give him a cuddle as if nothings happened and he may start to figure that the way to get mums attention is not by throwing a wobbly... just an idea (can't remember how 'da momma' dealt with Shan, can you?).
Making du'aa for you anyways hon, take care, love to babes' x

dude, um, i'd say talk to a bebe specialist. there's always a better way to manage things.

my lil bro didnt start talking till he was 3; he was confused with the mix of languages around him. it happens. :)

re: nosebleeds and tears - wish i could help! iA, try seeing a specialist, as owl's suggested.

hope it all goes well!
