Oh My Goodness, my baby has no volume control. He is LOUD.
And I'm not talking about crying or upset tantrums, I'm talking about his normal "talking" and squeals of delight.
As sweet as it is, sometimes it's a bit much.
The other day we were at church and he was fine playing beforehand, fine when the choir was singing and fine at the potluck after. But during one of the prayers he was squealing and shouting at nearly the top of his lungs. Everyone was staring. Most people thought it was cute and even the pastor playfully commented, but I was embarrassed and wanted him to turn down his volume.

When do they quiet down? Can I teach him to whisper? Or am I destined to have some loud party-animal type kid.

babies don't know this stuff, and they aren't going to learn for awhile.

Most you can do is get up and excuse yourself and come back when he's done or when the quiet time is over.

Yep, what Ro said.
And often times, quiet times are optimal times for babies to turn up the volume with their jabbering. They like the sounds of their voices & like to mimic us. My kids also like restrooms or other places where they can get a good echo going.

Luckily baby squeals are cute and people usually just laugh along with them. It's not until the full blown tantrums and screams that they become less cute and more annoying

This made me laugh! I don't exactly know when they learn to be quiet, but DS is very loud too, just with his normal babbles and chattering. Although I think it gets worse before it gets better, at 2-3 they talk non stop just to hear themselves talk, at 5 my DD just likes to repeat things adnausium to drive me insaine, and at 8 my other DD loves to scream and stomp about how I don't understand her.

It doesn't get better for a while. If he's being loud or wild during a time that is supposed to be quiet I normally just leave with him. Most people do usually think it's cute.

Ditto! You should hear my 3 year old, and it's not just squeals coming out of her anymore, usually it's a nice, loud, embarrassing comment

And when they get older, it becomes intentional. My sons love to do surprising, shocking things. We were in a packed elevator coming up from the maid of the mist in niagara falls when my (then) 13yr old let out a hilarious whooping sound, like the jackovasaurus. Not one person even looked surprised. My eyes shot wide open and I had to stop breathing to stop myself from bursting out laughing. It was so funny, Im still giggling, telling you about it, 2 years later! hahahahaha
