  • baby did that from birth to around 3 months or so. It was an odd sound. Babbling is very normal and it is a good sign that baby is practicing making noises, which will help in several months when you will want him to say some words.

  • To say that a baby "never shuts up" sounds pretty harsh. Babies are well known for crying alot. Plus, they have no way to communicate other than crying and making sounds. That is entirely normal, but I doubt a four month old is really about to talk.

  • OP here....
    Well obviously she isnt about to quote shakespeare, but she does put consonant and vowel sounds together... sorry I didn't know I had to break it down for you. AND she doesn't cry a lot, I didn't say anything about crying ... I said whining ... I didn't know if it was normal for my baby do be making noises allll of the time. Sorry I sound harsh, but it's true she is non stop!

  • Yes it's normal... as soon as my son found his voice we haven't had peace! LOL He is a chatterbox, now he's 15 months and can say tons of words.
