My 18 month old son will NOT stop screaming! He is a twin and my other son is not doing this. I know it's not caused by pain or anything like that. He screams all the time and has been doing this for 2-3 months. It's not a crying scream.. it's like AHH and he quits for a few seconds and starts in again. PLEASE HELP!! Is anyone having the same problem or have had the same problem?? What can I do???

They are bored and entertaining themselves by exploring the sounds they can make. Your twins are exploring cause and effect. As with any harmless behavior that is annoying to you, try to distract them and get them involved with doing something else, maybe another activity that involves noise, like singing or playing an instrument, or another activity that involves cause and effect.

Wow, it's a shame you can't ask him why he does it. Hopefully it's a phase and he'll grow out of it. Are there any times during the day when he isn't doing this? For example if you are playing with him and he doesn't scream but when you are cooking dinner for example he does scream, maybe he's craving one on one attention. Is his hearing ok? I'm sorry I don't have any advice for you, all I can suggest is to ask him to bescream quietly every time he does it....GOOD LUCK!
