  • Because she is totally entertained by the sound of her voice! it's a phase. She's having fun. As for the eating, babies will sleep thru the night when they are ready.

  • It's normal for a 10 mo to breastfeed twice at night.

    I'm not sure if you mean screaming crying or screaming for fun. Screaming crying can be frustration. When my grandson learned to walk the screaming stopped. Screaming for fun can just be that she has found her voice.

  • because she can't speak, that is how she communicates with you. she might have gas, try gas drops if you haven't already.

  • i think she is just screaming for fun....she isnt in any pain when she's screaming.....she just seems to do it to see what everyone will say to her. She will do it then laugh.

    about the eating at night...she hasnt always ate that much. she usually goes about 8-10 hours at night asleep.....but recently she is getting up 2-4 times a night. am i not feeding her enough during the day now that she is older....maybe a growth spurt???
