: 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!

Trinity is 8 months now and defintely knows what NO means. She won't always listen to me...she likes to test me! She always goes for the magazines underneath the coffee table and I say NO! She looks at me and smiles and the more I say it the less the smile and finally she says AHHH then tries again but sometimes she goes on to something else! She's getting to be bad! LOL But she does know what NO means I'm sure of that!
