    Sahd - I have a 6 month old who's been screaming since about 4 months. She thinks it's hilarious. Everywhere we go if she doesn't get the attention she wants she just screams - I used to try and stop her, and I worried that it wasn't normal now I just find it funny. Everyone stares at me if we're out as though I'm doing something terrible to her, but she's smiling away and just screaming!! She was the quietest newborn and then discovered her voice and now she won't stop! In fact as I sit here she is lying on the floor happily screaming at her twin sister who thinks it is hysterical and is giggling her little heart out - it's not all bad!

    Sounds like the moms here are describing are not this, but I just wanted to put it out there that a persistent, abnormal, high pitched scream (so called Encephalitic Cry) can be an indication of a serious/potentially serious neurological reaction to having received a vaccine.

    Can occur hours or days after a shot, commonly thought to be within 10 days (or in some case studies I've read, 2 weeks). If this happens to your baby, research it online and find a doctor who will take your concerns seriously.

    Neurological reactions such as this tend to intensify with subsequent vaccines.
