  • Could he think he is saying "excuse me?"
    About the burping and the screaming I don't know.... does he have a tummyache?

  • I agree with Bmat, that maybe thinks he's saying excuse me? My 5 yr old used to sound like he was saying "squeeze me" whenever he said excuse me. People always gave him the weirdest looks when they thought he was burping and then saying "squeeze me".

  • He may be trying to say excuse me. Or he may be trying to say "hiccup" and is confused as to which is a hiccup and which is a burp.

    What to do? Just ask him "are you trying to say ____?" And gently explain the right thing to say.

  • If he's naturally burping and saying it he's most likely trying to say "excuse me". If that is the case, simply praise him and say it correctly: "very good sweetheart, we say "excuse me" when we burp"

    If he's making himself burp and saying it, just ignore it.
