My son is 29 weeks and has developed this almighty raspy screech that he does when he's bored or having an extra good time. I mean, it's ridiculously loud! At the moment I'm trying putting in his dummy with my best serious face every time, but he loves his dummy and it's giving him attention for doing it. I'm not exactly sure what he might understand developmentally. Gosh I hope it's a phase.
Is if normal? Does anyone know how to make it stop?

Good luck, lol. My first son did the highest pitch squeal for a long time. His favourite trick was to wait until we got near another shopper at the supermarket and would squeal so loudly they would almost fall over with shock (I think the high ceilings made it sound better so he liked it). I tried everything to stop him, but he just did it more.
My second son is 7 months and he is starting to learn to squeal, and now he and his brother take turns squealing.

It's bloody awful!
My DS started squealing at about 12 months and it was so loud I was walking around with cotton wool in my ears and leaving the room to call my mum to cry. He grew out of it. The best thing to get through it was dummy, keep him busy and leave the house to distract him.

Oh gosh I forgot the squealing. Goody, something to look forward to. Don't worry OP, they eventually find another new (and equally as annoying) trick soon enough.

I feel your pain! DS did this all the time from about 6-9months. Seems to have grown out of it for the most part. When he does do it it's so loud it hurts my ears!!
