Did your baby scream at around 4-5 months?

My son will lay in his packNplay or on his blanket and just scream continuously. I think he's just trying to listen to his voice, but did anyone else experience this? He's not in any pain or anything. You can get him to smile right after he does it. It's really funny, but just wondering if it's normal. =)

  • Sounds very normal, as they are learning to purposefully make noises. I would think they enjoy the way it feels and the way it sounds. My five month old is a squealer. It's cute, at least for now. But, I haven't been embarassed in a quiet restaurant! lol Be sure to get it on video!
