Your baby looks young. My son went through a stage when he was exploring his voice and did a very high pitched scream not upset he just was making noises. I definately wouldn't pinch him that is just mean.

lol okay don't pinch your baby.. the whispering thing does work, or just plain ignoring him. In public though the ignoring thing might not be the best option.

pinching is a bit much but its really about age and what the child is trying to exspress to you ! You have to desiver is it a tatrum or a need if its a tamtrum just turn his attention away by using a radio,t.v if that dosnt work simply say nicely and direct no not ansering you until you behave and walk away.

How old is your baby? I know that babies at a certain age are exploring their voices and are seeing what they can do (like babbling). My son did the same thing at around 5 or 6 months and he stopped on his own. If your child is older than 1year old than I would say you can talk to them and say "No screaming please" or put them in time out to show that it's not OK to scream for no reason.

I've never pinched my baby, but I guess it would get their attention. I wouldn't recommend it though.

lol wow i never heard of pinching ur baby..... my daughter went threw that before and since she's my 4th child i learned that sometimes ignoring would work but they also like to hear ur voice that's when u start showing them how to conversate even though you dont understand a word you are saying lol. they are just exploring there voice and sounds.

Pinching would work or you could try whispering or talking in a real low tone. A child's curiousity will get the best of them, he/she will want to know what you're saying and in order to do that, they have to be quiet. But it does depend on the circumstance. If he/she is throwing a fit and you're at home....IGNORING is the key. Attention is what they are wanting and if you talk to them you're just putting wood on the fire. Walk away or turn your back and don't say a word.

pinch him, if u roar or get upset it will make him scream more, when a child takes a tantrum u pinch them to get them back into reality
