  • Sounds normal to me. My kids came up with all kinds of funny noises and expressions and different ages. As long as it doesn't seem as if they are having problems breathing it should be fine.

  • Oh it's perfectly normal. He's discovered his tongue and a noise he can make. That's all. He'll make all sorts of noises! It's a precursor to babbling. It starts with strange noises. Then they start making actual sounds. Then they start blending sounds. Then they start talking. It's a process.

  • thats normal ... every child loves doing that when htey find out how to make noise and realize they have a tounge.

  • This is normal. Before a child can speak comes the discovery that they can make all sorts of sounds. They will experiment with these sounds constantly until they eventually learn how to turn these sounds into speech.

  • You mean like making "rapsberries"? Where they are pretty much spitting? My son is doing that now. It is a phase all babies go through.
