At 7 months old you can't control something like that because not only are they just learning it but now that he's figured out how to do it he is going to want to do it all the time. Plus it's just a faze, he'll grow out of it. My baby boy is 9 months old and has been doing it since around 6-7 months old too. Oh and it will get louder and louder as the next few months come along. lol

Oh man I remember when mine first started doing that around that age it scared the daylights out of me! But like Jessica said it's a learning thing he figured out!! lol I used to mock him but lightly, didnt want to scare the little guy! lol he would laugh at me and we just had a game of it! He's 2 now!

My 7 month old LOVES to scream/screech lol. He discovered it several months ago & then stopped doing it for awhile. I thought "yay! he forgot how to scream haha." But, then he figured it out again & does it ALL the time! He started doing it during the sermon at church on Easter Sunday lol. I just figure he is practicing his voice & soon he'll learn a new sound to *hopefully* replace the wonderful screeching he has learned!

Yes Jessica that is exactly what me and his father thought, he likes the high pitch of it right now! Which is ok and yes does get aggrevaiting because I will not tell him no beacause he is still a baby like u said. Thats why I wanted some feedbak. thax

I don't think that's anything you need to "get under control"... 7 months is still a baby. He isn't doing it to test you. At that age they learn to do so many new things and discovering their voices is one of them... think of it as a new skill he's figured out, and now he's practicing and learning how his voice works. I'm sure its kind of annoying sometimes but I don't think you would want to inhibit his discovering new things... and chances are he'll grow out of it soon when he learns something else.

he'll definately grow out of that, i believe that they are testing you, to see what your reaction will be!!!
