So my daughter is 6 months old and adorable in every way except... when she is bored or a little uncomfortable or really happy or tired- she shrieks. This is screeching to bring the cows home and make the dog howl, embarrassing in public and headache inducing at home. I've tried to ignore it, I've tried talking to her quietly, singing to her, just telling her NO, distracting her, fixing whatever might be wrong but whenever I try to do anything (like laundry, dishes, making dinner) other than pay direct attention to her for more than 5 minutes, I suffer with this screeching. I am at my wits end. Most of the time, my fixes last for a while, but this is off and on ALL DAY. Have I created this monster (too much attention, if that's possible with a 6 mo. old)? Is it a phase? Could it be something more, like inner ear pain? HELP, how can I deal with this best?
