Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I would definitely talk to her doctor it could be something wrong. Try to watch and see if she messes with her ears. My kids scream like that when they have ear infections so that might be what's wrong. Try warming a rag or towel and laying it on her ear if you think that's what it is. the warmth should soothe the pain and help her sleep. Also, children can sense when you're stressed and it makes them more upset. If you and your husband both are way stressed out about what is wrong you won't be able  to soothe her. Try getting someone who hasn't been around the past few days with her screaming (your mom or a friend) and see if they can calm her down. Good luck and I'll be praying for you.
Is she teething? Check. Her gums and see if they're red and swollen. My 9 month old son screams like that when he has a new toot coming in.
i took her to the emergency room and the docter said she had a really really bad ear infection so he gave her some medicen to take anyways after she took it she fell asleep thanks guys for helping me
