Hi there - FTM - so not sure if all babies do this but my 4 and a bit month old has developed a new kind of cry. It’s more like a high pitched wail if I’m honest. She seems to do it when she’s playing and switches between laughing, smiling and then this wailing. Otherwise healthy baby nothing else to be concerned about. It’s not babbling, it’s definitely high pitched and very very loud!

Has anyone else’s baby done this? Is she just finding her voice?

My little boy has found screeching as his new sound!!! He loves it!!! Full volume anywhere and anytime! He's four and half months so guessing they're just experimenting!

Glad to hear I’m not the only one!

Well I suppose I should just get used to her singing the song of her people.

My DS did this. DH couldn't understand where he'd learnt it from and thought I had taught him hmm It does stop!

Is it the noise that sounds a bit like a dinosaur? Both of mine did that one, loudly and repeatedly...

That’s the very noise lol it just started one day out of nowhere. She likes making it most when we are standing in a queue somewhere or when we’ve just started dinner.

Haha yeah mine liked to do it in church, or when I was on the phone... I think it's just when they discover the volume control. It does pass, though!
