It is normal for babies to scream?

My 10 month old baby screams all the time. We are at the restaurant and all of a sudden there it is a loud noise coming from my little one. Have you ever heard people screaming watching a horror movie well this is exactly what my son does.

  • I think,when they realize they can scream,they just love hearing themselves.Or they know it goes right through us. lol

  • I think when little ones finally figure out that they are capable of making noises and are totally in control of them, they really like to try it out and see what they can do. Not to mention loving all the attention they get from doing it. This is the perfect time to start teaching them that there are places where this is appropriate and places where it is not. They are quick learners, they understand better than we give them credit for.

  • It sound like he is trying to get your attention maybe. He maybe trying to tell you that he is over stimulated or tired or something else. If you are concerned ,you might want to call your pediatrician and ask him/her about it just to ease your worry.
