what do to!

i can not get my 7.5 month old daughter to stop screaming for nothing! and its not a scream of needing anything, she could b changed fed burped, have toys infront of her. and she will just look at you and yell. i think its her wanting all the attention. but i cant even put her down for a second and start cleaning with out her just yelling..its rediculous... i also belive it could b from her teething, when i look at her gums i think i see the start of 2 teeth trying to pop threw.. im not quite sure what to do...and its driving me boncers!

  • shes probably just yelling to yell kids do that they figure out they can do it and that they get a reaction out of it from you and thats funny for them theres no way to get her to stop she will grow out of it just let her do it dont pick her up everytime and i agree with the sling shit thats dumb kids need to learn to be independent not that they are going to be carried around everywhere all the time

  • Some children find they can make a noise and get a reaction from a parent. It's just a learning process. If she is crying then rub her gums for teething relief.

  • If she's teething it hurts. Address that first. Also invest in a sling of some sort so you both can benefit.

  • i am not going to carry my daughter arround everywhere. i belive that that is retarded. call me bad mom. idc. she can crawl and stand up she can b a big girl. mommy has things she has to do arround the house...and i give her teething tablets and teether rings, she is just not interested in them. plain and simple. nevermind on the question. yall just arent understanding.

  • I get it, she's screaming bc she's trying to communicate w/ you & that's what she knows works. Could be she's frustrated, could be her gums hurt, could be she just wants your attention. Teach her baby signs & her screaming will stop. Once she has a way to let you know what she wants she won't need to scream.
