How to make baby stop screaming

At 6 months we're at the hollering phase. Charlie doesn't appear to be upset, he's dry and fed but he will holler and scream like crazy.

The best I can think of has been to keep him distracted as soon as the screaming starts. It isn't always effective but for the most part it does work. I always have a rattle or some other toy on hand to offer him. I try not to react as I don't want him to learn that screaming will get a reaction.

      Luckily, that stage doesn't usually last long. He's just figuring out how those lungs and vocal chords work!
