My son will be 8 months soon and he's always been an attention hog. The past month he started yelling (not screaming) to get attention. If I leave the room he yells, if he is bored or hungry he yells. Once you look at him and say something he gets so happy. I give him plenty of attention so I know he's not deprived. It's gotten so bad now that when we go to the store he yells at every stranger he can. He yells until they look at him and then he flashes the biggest smile you've ever seen! Then they melt and have to come talk to him, he smiles and laughs for them. Which is good, he's not shy and he makes a lot of old people happy! But he's so loud and now my shopping trips take twice as long! How can I get him to stop yelling?
