  • Yes it's normal, and dont worry. You'll get your share of crying before you know it and you'll be wishing for these days again :)

  • Some babies are just more content than others. My dd is 8 months old now and has hardly ever cried...I mean, she has her days, but she's definitely not a fussy baby.

    Don't get too excited! You might jinx yourself! Ha, Good Luck!

  • When I had my son I didn't think he could cry... He made noises but, didn't cry until he was a week or so old... haha The nurses couldn't belive it in the hospital. My son is 6 months old now and hardly ever cries he is just always smiling and laughing. Everywhere we go I always get commented on how good he behaves. It just means you are meeting all his needs. He does have his days but, he is starting to teeth to.

  • Some babies are just quieter than others. My cousin was a extremely quiet baby, didn't even really babble. And then didn't talk until almost two, but now you can't shut him up. Be thankful for the quiet moments. As a mom of a high need, fussy baby I am green with envy!
