7 month old always screaming n crying :( help.


Hia all,
Not posted on here for a while hope everyones ok
Basically my son is nearly 7 months now n for a while everytime i take him out into town or somewhere in public, he screams n screams in his pram. He has always been a little bugger from day one to be fair, but after u gave him some milk or something he would settle n fall asleep but its got to a point now he just wont stop unless i pick him up out of his pram, even then sometimes hes still screaming. Its like i cant ever get nothing done n its got to a point where i just want to stay in all the time so spent alot of my time home i know it sounds silly but its like im too scared to go anywhere with him cos way he acts, he has such a LOUD scream, rings bells in ur ears ,everyone looks and turns there heads i know you shouldnt be embarrsed but when hes like this i cant help it sometimes, i was actually in tears one day last week in middle of our town with him i just dont know why hes like this, even family members ask me whats wrong with him so it isnt just me, there always like "i dont know a baby like it" , bla bla. i know babys cry but he just seems to take it to the extreme ,yestaday he started screaming in mothercare, but i was determined not to pick him up so he wont keep getting used to it, so i carried on, went into a couple more shops (still screaming) and walked the 20 minutes back home and yes he was still screaming lol, screamed n screamed until i put the tv on and put mickey mouse on and from then on silence... ahhhh lol.
Has anyone had similar issues? Is it just his age, teething mabey? Like i mentioned above he has been like this for a while, mabey since 3 months but he would settle eventually but its got to a point now at nearly 7 months he will not settle n cry for ages ,its like hes being terroised, he goes bright red, screaming, even sometimes scratches himself , he is always fed, watered n clean so i dont know what it is, half the time hes screaming and no tears are to be seen, i try give him his dummy and he just is screaming so loud hes nearly swallowing the thing n spitting it out ahhhh, stressed lol.
He screams at home but i can control it as can put him down or put him in his walker or jumperoo or put mickey mouse on or something and hes fine but out in public im limited, anyone have similar issues?
Thanks all

Have you tried a baby carrier instead of a pram?

Hia, no i was thinking of getting one before when he was abit younger, but wasnt sure what one to go for, hes a big baby weighs nearly 21 pounds so not sure what would be best and since ive had him my back has been playing up terrible so would need one which would be easy on my back, would anyone suggest one which would be best? we have actually just brought him a new pram, the icandy cherry one i can face him towards me as i thought this may be the problem as before in his silvercross he couldnt see me, but nope still the same even facing me... ahhhh lol x

Oh my, that must be frustrating. The past couple of months my daughter's also been pickier when out and about and she's in her stroller. What I found that helps is bringing toys along. I think she was just bored in there and wanted some entertainment! Yesterday we were out for 3hrs. and she was an angel. We took her out during lunch so she could peak around and the rest of the time she was content looking through her soft book and playing with the other two toys brought. I also gave her a sippy cup filled with a little water, which she finds more as a toy/teether but also practices drinking with it. That's all I can suggest really.. sounds simple but it has help tons in keeping her content in there. Good luck!

Thanks for replys Ye he is teething, been teething since he was about a month old or so lol, but hes got 3 teeth coming through now at once, which might not be helping with his screaming either, hes been like this for a while now but hes just getting worse to point he just will not stop screaming, gave him some juice, dummy, nope nothing, little terror lol, makes me laugh cos theres not one single tear down his face just a bright red screaming lil sod lol , he does get bored easy even at home, he has these fits at home too but as i said above i can control it better at home by giving him toys, putting him in walker etc, ahhh just so frustrating lol, also when he sees someone he hasnt seen for a while or hasnt seen before and they try and hold him he goes NUTS, screams, crys, tears, its so awkward with family members lol. anyone else similar situation? thanks for advice i will try taking some more toys with him, i have a few times brought along stuff to attach to pram and he still kicks off after a while, will try some others tho, hope he grows out of it soon lol

Maybe he's in pain from teething? Baby Tylenol? I second the suggestion to get a baby carrier.

have u tried putting some bonjela/calgel on his dummy it should just be enough so that he'll suck the dummy and should settle down abit, works with my little one also little rice cakes that he can hold and eat himself normally keeps them occupied.
I feel your pain!xx
