The problem is that you give up, she throws a tantrum and you give in. You have to teach her to listen to you. Tell her and show her as you get rid of the baby stuff. Explain why you' re doing it and that it' s not up for negotiation. If she throws herself on the ground, don' t let it affect you!!!

Its important to remain RESOLUTE, be firm and once you' ve made a decision  DON' T change your mind. This is part of her
learning. If you give in to her tantrums, you' re just teaching her
that she can get her way by throwing tantrums!!!

...if all else fails, THROW a bigger tantrum  it has been known
to work(shock effect)

Good luck...

PS - Always remember " who"  is the parent, don' t let her pull
a switching of roles on you, and that applies for the next
18 years of her life!!!
