  • when she is playing, just scream and squeel along with her. she will look at u like ur crzy and stop eventrually. but honestly, just soak it up and play along

  • Do not react to it and redirect her attention elsewhere.

  • She is getting some sort of reaction from you, ignore her and show no reaction.

  • at 4 months their isn't much to do. They scream when they are happy. If she continues to do so after 7-8 months you can put a inger on her lips and whisper 'shhhh. not so loud' She will catch on in time.

  • I agree with the others...just ignore it. Act like you dont hear her..and she will realize that you dont care..and eventually stop. My 4 year old does this high-pitched squeel..she thinks it hilarious..but it just burns your ears! We ignore it..and she eventually stops. Good Luck!
