I have never heard of a relationship between the two things but it is possible. My son had really bad colic for the first 3 months of his life. He doesn't have temper tantrums and never has. I mean he gets angry sometimes but never anything major. Let us know what you find out. Stephanie :D

My kids are TOTAL opposites--I mean people actually ask me if they are full brother and sister. I am surprised I even had Autumn after Trent was so colicy. I got postpardum depression so bad with him and I know part of it was because I didn't get much sleep because he was crying all of the time. I got so down and out after I had him. Now Autumn didn't have colic--praise the Lord. I guess the Lord knew I couldn't handle two like that.
Best of luck with your precious children!
Angela had to go on the special expensive formula just for colic :roll: I don't know if there is a connection but I do know I have one of the most emotional children in the world now :lol:
People ask me if she's okay alot. So one day I just asked the ped. Is she okay? He said next time I'm asked that to ask the person to define okay.
So I do that now when asked if she's okay, I ask them to define okay...They usually :wink: and say " I see your point "..
Hope it gets better for you.

My kids weren't colicy, but my DS does have TT's. He is a very stong willed child. We just explain to him calmly that this attitude is unacceptable. Dr. Dobson wrote a book "The Strong Willed Child".
Kana, how old is you ds? My first ds was wonderful. No problems at all. Now that he is 8 you can't make him upset. That, of course, may change w/time, but he still is so even tempered. Now my youngest ds...different story all together. We have the TT's really bad too. I mean dancing and screaming and clapping hands (sometimes it looks like he's got the holy ghost in him lol!!) Now he has figured out he can stiffen out and throw himself back. He is almost 16mos. I always thought colic was only during the first few months of life, but I could be mistaken.

My DD had colic...we had to do the expensive brand for a little while to...but, it didn't help. They eventually gave her some drops....which only helped a little. But, yeah she does have a bit of a temper on her. We are trying to be patient with her and keep to our rules. But, here lately it seems the tantrums have gotten worse and more frequent...her big things is...I give a "no-no" and she will go to a corner and start crying and screaming(I have never sent her to a corner..so not sure why she does this) or she rings her hands and crys. Not sure if colic is related...but, hey maybe it's hereditary :lol: ..you should meet some of my family :D But, I think if you take some patience and stick to your rules..not waver....tantrums will get fewer and fewer....at least that is what I am hoping for.
