hi my ds has just turned 6 months and for the past 2 weeks he has done nothing but scream and shout!! he's well fed and watered and hes dry. sometimes it stops when i lift him and other times it doesnt. he getys plenty of attention but not too much that he can usually amuse himself with his toys hes not in any pain, i thought he'd just found his voice. im finding it really hard 2 cope with the screaming as it is ear peircing!!!!! hs anyone any advice please and is this normal????????????
I've just been searching old threads on exactly this! My 8 month DD also does ear piercing screams, sometimes when she is having fun but also when she seems frustrated. She doesn't do it when she is upset.
Other threads suggest it is normal, somebody did recommend baby signing which was interesting. Lets hope somebody with more advice comes along. Otherwise it is out with the earplugs!
i saw a programme about baby signing on the baby channel not that long ago it looked really interesting but i wouldnt have a clue where 2 start, im from belfast and ive not heard of any classes or anything like it in the area. it would be good 2 be able 2 communicate better, i feel awful when he's shouting and i cant help! thanks 4 all the advice
LOL DD does this round the supermarket! Very embarrassing but funny. She does it when she's happy though, like when we're having our lie in some mornings, she'll bounce on my (considerable) tummy and shriek!
The other alternative is blowing raspberries at everyone so....
