My baby is 8 months and he's been blowing raspberries since he was four months. I kind of wish he would stop, though. He does it constantly and he drools with it and blows the spit all over your face. I wouldn't worry if he's not doing it. By the time he goes to kindergarten, he'll be able to everything the other kids can--they all even out about that time.

i think it all depends on the child and each child is different. my son is 6 months and he has just started blowing them but he only does it some times. i wouldnt worry if your girls arnt doing it yet hold out they will when its right for them

My son was probably about 6 months or so when he started blowing rasperries...I think he likes the sound more than anything? HAHA - anyway, as the others said, it's mostly about imitation and copying your movements and your sounds. He's been sticking his tongue out, for example, for about a month or two longer than the rasperry thing because I stuck my tongue out a few times when we were playing and he copied me.

my niece was blowing raspberries at about 8 weeks. i spent alot of time with her and me and her mum were constantly blowing raspberries at her and she copied. at six minths mine used to shake their heads when i said no no no and put their hands in the air when i said hooray because they were things we went over and over. they mimic you. i wondered for years on how a baby learned to smile, i figured it out though...what is the first thing you do when your baby looks at you?
