My 7month old DD has started doing the most awful shrieking sound, she sounds really angry and the noise is going right through me and upseting her brother.

DS never did this, is it just a sound shes learnt or is she just angry. Do they all do this?

My DD did the screeching thing (and still does at 12 months unfortunatley!) she seemed to go through phases where she would shriek all day for a couple of weeks then 'forget' about it for a few weeks only to 'rediscover' it again (much to my delight obviously! )

Oh i am so with you - my ds 9 months has an awful ear piercing can shatter glass. My dd never did it - am hoping he will stop soon

Oh you were supposed to say... "it lasts one day and never resurfaces again" grin

It is truly a hideous noise, i had to put her bed early to get some peace. Poor DS has had his head under a pillow all day!

Prehaps we should put them together

my DD does this - sometimes a very stern look and saying "NO" works, other times not. and yes, she does it in phases, usually around teeth coming through, but also at random. it is very annoying

LOL janx, let them shriek at each other till they get bored.

She cut two teeth 5 days ago overnight, thought that may have something to do with it, but she seems to be shrieking out of anger/fustration. I've tried the NO and stern looks, but as shes only just 7 months i felt ridiculous and she looked at me with a 'yeah whatever Mum, i dont understand a word you're saying' type look... then shrieked again!
