    Ruby is exactly the same! Drives me mad. However it has eased off in the last couple of days. I am not sure why, I think it is either tiredness, overstimulation, boredom, or just a new thing they have worked out how to do and therefore want to do all the time :)

    zane still has moments like this and i no how frustrating it is, does he take a dummy?

    if so something i do with zane is dap a small amount of calpol on it and he sucks on it till he sleeps, used to save my sanity when he was younger lol

    also have u tried music? when zanes really bad certain songs shut him up and i came across them by accident, so turn on the radio or music channels n see if one gets his attention

    Yeah I give Ruby her dummy if she does it out or at someone else's house! If at home I usually try and tackle the actual problem by changing her scenery / activity, or seeing if she wants a sleep.

    alex did that same noise constantly between 0230 and 0330 this morning but was amongst shrieks of joy and gurgles.
    Not funny at the time but all smiles and full of the joys of spring this morning.
    I notice our babies are a similar age

    Brianna did it at about that age. Kept it up for a while then stopped now that she's 6 months she's doing it again. I think they're just testing they're vocal chords not to mention us!

    Alex has started doing this over the past week or so, at first i thought there was something wrong but he is laughing and giggling in between doing it, so i dunno maybe they have just figured out they are actually making the noise so wanna test it out?

    I really don't want to start an argument / offend anyone, but is it really necessary to give medicine for this?

    id rather give a small amount of medicine then to get both myself and the baby even more worked up.

    has ive got pnd n i also no kmh has sometimes its the best way to get a quick fix so we dont feel lower then we already do

    ps note that i said if nothing else helps
