Recs on parenting toddlers?

So my sweet, innocent little one has recently turned into a fussy, tantrum-throwing toddler! It seems like someone flipped a switch in her, and I don't really know how to handle her new behaviors. Where before she would zoom around the living room checking stuff out, she now clings to my leg and screams if I don't pick her up, but as soon as I do she squirms and wants down. This constant pick me up, put me down thing is getting old! Mealtimes have become a chore, too. She hates her highchair, and a lot of the time refuses (loudly) to eat things she loved just a couple of weeks ago. She'll be 13 months next week...I wasn't prepared for this type of behavior this soon!

Can anyone recommend some good reading material for me?

I had the "switch the flip" thing with ODS, not fun.......I didn't read the above book but did go to the library and try many....some suited us better than others.

There is one, but I think it's more older?? for a strong willed child and how to parent them? If you discover(as my ods is) that this is indeed your LO's personality then it would be a good read. Hoping it's just the toddler phase.
