  5. 16 Month old Screams at everything :(

16 Month old Screams at everything :( Lock Rss

I am just asking for some advice. My baby boy turned 16months old last week and he has instantly started this high pitched scream for everything. A few days was bearable but now it's making me go crazy sad
How can I stop him from screaming for everything? He screams when he wants something, when he wants me to do something, when he wants more food, when he is just walking around etc..... I don't know how much longer I can handle it.
I am hoping someone can give me some ideas on how to make it stop.
I know it must be frustrating for him not being able to talk but screaming is not working for any of us.
Thanks in Advance smile

A phase that most toddlers go through. So frustrating! We try to ignore the screams and constantly praise good behaviour and also not caving to demands but saying "use your words or signs" when he wants something.
Thanks Shakespeare smile
What a frustrating phase aye sad I am doing all that so it seems hopefully it will just get better.

Yeah, just like every phase it will end, you don't see many adults walking round screaming for no reason smile just their little way of trying to communicate.

Try asking him to use his words.

Or try him sign language for babies.



Sometimes around this age autism presents itself with high pitched screams. Im not you Im not there I do not know.
My ds did this then got into pointing at things he wanted. We found out later that he had a severe language delay. I would encourage your tot to use words if possible. Hopefully this is just a phase & things will improve. Xx
