My son is 14 months and lately he just follows me around screaming to get my attention. I don’t want to encourage this so I’ve been ‘ignoring’ it (for as long as possible) but then it just turns into a major temper tantrum and the screaming gets worse. I am 7.5 months pregnant and soon will have another baby to take care of and I don’t want this screaming to disturb the newborn or for the newborn to pick up on it either. I have tried telling my son “No! No more screaming!” and put him into his bed.. but nothing seems to be working and it is seriously starting to drive me crazy, to the point where my afternoons are me sitting and crying. Any advice would be muchly appreciated..
