  • I think they are cooing sounds, but not babling. Some babies especially twins will mature and do different things on their own time table.

  • Mine are the complete opposite! Well, they are 4 months, but my baby boy is talking (babbling whatever), laughing and rolling around. My baby girl has just started getting more vocal. I think it's just the difference in the babies. I don't know though how to tell you whether he's cooing or not. I think if he's making noise and recognizing his name and meeting all of his milestones I wouldn't worry about it.

  • Noise is noise, he is on track.
