my daughter is 6 months old and she makes a growling noise all the time....i have a 6 year old boy and he never made that sound,and when out in public people look at us funny when she does it. is it normal for her to make these sounds? im afraid she is going to ruin her vocal cords..when i make that noise it is definatly strenuous.

my son does that everytime he is tired and tries to fight it lol. it is so funny b/c i can hear him in the car and i know when he is about to sleep. idont think it is a problem for your baby or mine. it will be a funny story to tell them when they get older:)

Lol, my daughter just started doing that this week! Anytime she figures out how to make a new sound, she does it constantly (we went through about 3 weeks of constant blowing raspberries!). Its totally normal, she's just learning new ways of making sounds!

LOL! That is sooo cute! None of my kids did that at that age and it is perfectly normal. She will not ruin her vocal cords, she is discovering that she can do these things. You can try to introduce a different sound that she could copy you by making it seem fun! Don't worry, it's a phase and she will move onto something new. But it's still soooo cute! : )

My son (also six months) does the same thing! He seems to do it when he's bored, sleepy or uncomfortable. I guess it's normal, just another way of communicating. How long has she been doing it?? My LO has been doing it for over a month and, although he still does it (yes, it's annoying), the frequency seems to be decreasing.
