So my baby boy, Jack, is a very happy baby. Always smiling and laughing. Lately he has started yelling A LOT! Not yelling like he is mad, he is yelling just to yell. It's like he likes to hear himself or something. He does it playing, laughing, rolling around, jumping, burping you name it he just likes to yell. Its SO loud, after awhile it really starts to drive me crazy. Is this normal? Are there any other babies that does this too?

My son is 7 months old too and he has just started doing the same thing. I thought that it was only my little boy. I think that they do this because they have found out that they have a voice and like to hear it and use it. My babysitter who has been watching kids for 27 years says that this is normal, so all we have to do is get through it.

My son like to hear his voice to. He will do it until he gets red in his face, catch he breath and then do it again. Luckily he doesn't do it all day, but he likes the attention too when he does it. The people loves it when he do it in the Mall, and if anyone give him a comment, he will give them a naughty smile back. It doesn't really drive me crazy, I like it. I see it as part of his divelopment. Have a great day!

LOL. My son Timothy was doing this as I was shopping at the grocery store yesterday. It was sort his way of saying "hi everyone, I'm here!" It wasn't so cute after I got home and was trying to prepare dinner for my other son and husband, not to mention I had a severe pre-menstrual headache.

Wow, I am glad to hear that my little girl isn't the only one doing this. She has been screaming and squealing at the top of her lungs for a while now. Some times she does it for so long she almost goes horse. and it's loud!!! She makes that noise like you hear when you call a fax machine. It's so funny she uses her yells to get attention like when we are at the store in the checkout line so everyone has to look at her and then she starts laughing and lifting her arms up and screams louder. Thanks for relieving some of my worry!

Ya my baby boy, Jacob does that same thing and it drives me crazy too. If I ever find a way to stop him from doing that I'll let you know but as of right now when he does it I just ignore him like I don't even hear him but its some hard lol.

My michael is doing this also, he has also discovered grunts and other quite interesting noises...I think it's just vocalizing and getting to know their voices...

Mine too. He sounds like he has an itch in his throat, or constipating!! Sometimes he'll yell nonstop, sometimes he'll mix it up and babble a bit. Seems like it's a normal phase, since other babies are doing it too. I was worried he was trying to tell us he's coming down with something!

Hi Jennifer...my baby boy, Jacob just turned 7 months on Friday! He just started to crawl as well - actually, doing the "army scoot"!! And just like yours, he always smiles and laughs and plays! He used to scream like that for the past few months! My mom said it's just because he's "discovering his voice!" Eventually it'll quiet down - until they start teething! Then it's REAL madness!

My daughter will sit there and scream at everything! It's so loud that I can't hear myself think sometimes. I too hope this is just a stage because my oldest whom is 8 years old now never did that.

My now almost 7 month old went through a stage where he would not just yell...but it was almost a screech. He too is a very happy easygoing baby and it lasted a couple of months...he would be sitting in the exersaucer and he would just all of a sudden start screeching at the top of his lungs! It was funny! I think he just wanted some attention. I think it's normal.

My 6 1/2 month old son does it as well. Its usually when we are out, like dinner, shopping, he does it, then smiles, then yells again, then laughs, he thinks he's being absolutely hilarious.

My little girl does this too ! Some days not so much but when she does oh my does she yell lol. Usually as she sits and plays with her toys or crawls around, at first i thought she was doing it to get my attention but i think they have found their voice and intend on using it!

My son will scream just to scream no matter what is going on. He also likes me to scream at him back... not as loud but respond in a scream. It drives me crazy especially when I get migraines. It's a phase that I think most babies go through. They discovered their voice and they want to hear it as much as possible.

ally is very passive so far, more of a thinker. she is always taking things in, her favorite thing is to be outside to watch the trees and she just stares all around her at everything. she does talk and sometimes she will scream but not very often. its weird to have a daughter who is quiet because i am not quiet at all:)

me too! Ava my 7 month old screams at you to get your attention. its amazing how she can carry on but then as soon as eye contact is made she stops and smiles. at first i thought she was just trying to be heard over her 5 year old sister but now reading everyone elses comments i think it must be the age. lets hope they grow out of it quickly.

My son, who just turned seven months, has been doing the screaming/yelling thing too. He also growls. It does hurt the head at times but I keep a bottle excedrin on hand and try to redirect him by talking to him softly and playing with him to get him to giggle. At night when he should be sleeping it is funny to hear him growling at and screaching at the little toys we have securely attached to the side of his crib. I am thinking since there are so many of our children doing this that it is completely normal.

He he he my daughter does it as well...I think it's pretty cute though lol. I think sometimes she thinks she is talking to us or telling long stories. She has been doing it for awhile but recently has learnt different pitches. She started highpitched and has just figured out a low pitched growl...her voice became hoarse she was growling so much...it's making home life very entertaining! I think it is just a stage, I hope it isn't an indication on how much she'll talk or I think we are all in trouble :-)

OH YES! The happy yelling has started in our house also. The first time she did it I ran to her thinking something was wrong - then she laughed and ever since she has been yelling. And our daughter has a very high pitched yell - it really hurts the ears sometimes! The members at our church think its pretty funny though when she insists on helping to preach! lol. The hard of earing members can hear her no problem at all.

Jack is 6 months. Glad to hear there are other babies doing the same thing. Makes a new mom feel better. Hopefully the yelling stops for our sanity.

My little girl started doing this around 6 1/2 months. She just screams to scream! its so loud and so hard to deal with when were out. I think its normal for them to yell like this at this age. Im with you on this one and i hope for both of us it ends soon!

Not Jack, he just yells non stop. Its like his way of talking or something but its SO loud. Sometimes I think he does it when he is bored but then he will do it when he is playing or being burped. I just don't get it. Maybe he will talk a lot when he is older. Just wondering if other babies do the same or this is just my lovely boy!
