  • It could be nothing or it could be a tic. If you are concerned then talk to your dr. Its hard to tell. GL

  • she prob just realized she could feel a body part by doing that. my son sometimes shrugs. or he'll just open his mouth as wide as possible when he is walking around. they're starting to realize they can move some muscles. i would personally just say its a learning thing. o and my son grunts and growls, ya already has attitude lol

  • It is not a tic. She's just being cute-shy-flirting. My DS has done it from 5 monthe to present 11 months. He has been grunting since birth. I use to think he was mocking his dad stretching his neck. LOL Its just her way of expressing herself. Every child has thier own little personalities.
