My baby girl grunts all the time. When she is excited, its most common. When she stands she does it as well. She is usually smiling when she does it, but she sounds mad. I dont think she is... Anyone else experience this? Shes 5 months old.

  • Oh, yes! We have grunting and loud squealing. Logan is just discovering that he can make a huge racket. The first time he squealed, we thought he was really upset. He just looked up at us, smiled big and squealed again. They are just having fun and exploring something new about themselves! :)

  • My baby is a growler too. She does it with more expression the older she gets! She's 11 months now and we say she's part Wookie and we call her Chewmama!
