  • she probably recognizes that when she cries she gets extra attention or you'll come to her quickeer. I think its possible but Id have to ask my SO to be sure, he's the child psychology major.

  • My son is four and half months and I he definately cries purely for attention sometimes, he'll be fussing away and as soon as he hears me coming towards him he goes quiet and smiles, so yes!!

  • My daughter is 6 months too, and she will cough in this funny way to get my attention. I guess as soon as they find out what works, they will use it to their advantage LOL

  • Try to ignore it, and praise the good behavior. My son did the fake cough thing, too.
