    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

Is he normal? how do i break the screaming ?

    Well, I've always heard that kids are raised by different parents - you are a different mom now than you were when you had your first child 8 years ago!

    Babies are constantly testing out new "talents" and screaming is probably new and exciting for him!

    If you are concerned, perhaps bring this up with your pediatrician. It might be a hearing issue. When is his 6 month check up?
