Our LO has started shrieking for no apparent reason, usually when she's on her playmat during the day and she laughs at same time, so I know she's not in pain or anything. Anyway this afternoon I had an unannounced visit from local german child welfare, as apparently one of the neighbours had reported that something odd may be happening. I couldn't believe it, called DH at work, as my german is not great. The lady was actually quite nice, could see that LO is a happy and content baby, looked at her cot, crib, commented how many toys she had, noticed all the family photos on wall with LO and her gran etc and said no further action would be taken. I'm still fuming now about the whole thing, babies do scream and shriek!.
