Redundant language

This is me saving the English language again. The lone crusader.

A friend asks why we use the phrase ‘temper tantrum’: what other sort of tantrum, is there, he asks.  Then I hear another query about people who have a ‘new baby’. Again, what other sort is there ?

Can we start a collection of verbal redundancies ?
