  • oh ya..i wondered about this for like three months. I thought my son was half animal. i never heard these sounds come from a baby until I had one. His crib is in my room so it was hard to sleep, he did it for periods of time that seemed like the entire night. Then eventually it just stopped. I still dont knwo for sure what it was, my son would do it as he curled up his legs into a ball. i dont think it was gas though he wasnt that gassy. just newborns need time to get all those odd little things outa there system like the flailing arms n not being able to sleep flat on their back comfortably. i thoght it would never go away but it did. theres always something to worry about isnt there?
