i have a 1 yr 2 week old and she screams all the time! its loud and annoying she responds with screams and then laughs afterwards. somethimes she will just scream to get attention. or while were in the store. she is not in pain or uncomfortable she knows she is doing it, i ignore it so she doesnt get feedback. is this normal and how do i get her to stop?

o i have said it so firmly she starts to scream louder or just tear up and cry. i know she understands me because she will test me like do a lil squak and i'll say "enough" and she does a bigger one. my husband is in afghanastan and has been this whole year so i'm worried i'm doing something wrong because of words she used yells and high pitched screams

Firmly tell her "That's enough of that behaviour"! She's a year old, and if you don't start setting boundaries and indicating appropriate versus inappropriate behaviour now, you'll have a bigger handful.

Babies love to hear themselves and the cause and effect thing they love, its an accomplishment to them! My get on mommy's nerves but it should pass just one of the many stages! I would try to change the focus onto something different when she does this like peek a boo, so its laughing instead!
