  • Do you breastfeed? If so this is his way of looking for his food supply. They call it rooting because he will rub against your breast in search of the nipple and will do the same rubbing against anything/anyone he is laying with to find the nipple

  • sounds like rooting, a natural born reflex. If he grunts too its so cute.
