Thanks to everyone who replied to my post on baby screaming. Good news - the screaming has reduced. Firstly, he has recovered completely from his illness, which may be why he is not cranky anymore. Hubby and I spent a lot of time this weekend "teaching" our baby how to entertain himself for short periods of time. We kept playing his favourite music, played hide and seek and every time he screamed, we said no-no loudly firmly. I am beginning to believe that an eight month old baby can actually understand a lot of things!
