  • It might be helpful if you could provide a bit mroe info on the circumstances under which he starts screaming. Is he truly screaming "constantly"? "Entertaining him constantly" sounds like he's going to be part of the problem. ..

  • My son did this too when he was around that age. Is it a scream of like im having a lot of fun or scream like he's upset. If its a good scream then he will just grow out of it,at least my son did. But if it is a discomfort scream then figure out when he does it and see if you can change it. I usually just let him do it in his room. I would set him in his room close the door slightly and just let him get it out. He usually only did it once. That all I really got. I never really tried to do anything...it was like he was overwhelmed or was just doing it for fun so I never felt the need to stop it. Good luck.

  • I think you stole my baby! HAHA! Whenever my son (14 months old) cries/throws fit and there is absolutly nothing to be done, I make a bottle & put him in his crib. I know most people don't think this is a good thing but I see it differently I guess. He gets to get his anger out in the comfort of his crib where he can't hurt himself, and I don't feel like I want to go insane listening to him scream. If you haven't tried it, there is nothing wrong with self-soothing at this age.
