ah having loud neighbours sucks. Maybe try talking to them? Maybe they don’t realise how thin the wall are.. :/

Can you record what you hear in your apartment and then slip the tape/CD etc under the door? That way you can be anonymous and it might stop? If it doesn’t then I would try a more direct approach.

She may have “night terrors”. Little kids (or adults) screaming in the middle of the night. I would talk to your neighbors and tell them you can hear her. Maybe they would be more accomodating and either move her when she screams, or something.

Honestly, you could say something to the neighbor, but there’s not much you can do. Doesn’t sound like an abuse situation, some kids just cry a lot. Unfortunately that’s apartment life. I’m sure the mom doesn’t want to hear it all day any more than you do.

Maybe you should ask them “Hey, was everything okay last night?  I heard ______scraeaming all night, was she sick or something?”  Then maybe they’ll explain what’s going on.

I would look into having CPS investigate it or at least making a call to them so they can have it on record that there has been some concern. There may not be any abuse at all but it never hurts to call and tell them about what you hear all the time. Who knows, maybe they have had calls before on them and it is something they will want to look into. Or maybe they won’t investigate it at all. In the least, you would feel better knowing that in case it was abuse, you tried to report it. It just doesn’t seem like normal behavior to always be screaming and in the middle of the night?

If CPS were called on me everytime my 3 yr old cried in the middle of the night…they would have to move in with us.   lol
