My 4 month old keeps making a weird "uUUGH uUUGH" sound

Al day yesterday my son kep making this "uuh uuh" sound over and over...I'm worried...can anyone tell me what this is. He would smile when I would look at him and do it if i didn't look at him he would do it louder.

  • Its probably just a new sound that he discovered he could make. If hes happy and smiling then why worry? My daughter always made strange noises. Its curiousity for them and its fun.

  • Sounds like he's just discovered a new sound he likes. Don't worry about it, it's normal to experiment with sounds. He's communicating with you, enjoy it!

  • that's so funny! my almost 5-months old son does this, too! it's this rhythmic sound, over and over. sometimes he does it really softly and sometimes pretty loudly. when i imitate him, he grins at me, like i'm "speaking his language". ;-) i agree with what the others have said...if he doesn't seem to be in discomfort (i.e, making the sound because of pain), chalk it up to him discovering a new skill. my son is extremely vocal in general since about 3.5 months...he babbles a lot. it's totally normal, as they figure out they can make sounds like grown-ups do.

  • My daughter has made strange noises since she was a couple months old. I would not worry unless he seems hurt or upset. If he thinks it is funny he is fine.

  • Is it kind of like a grunt? Most baby's do this well into their talking stage. My friends baby still does it and she's 10 months. It's just a form of verbal communication

  • Could he be straining to have a bowel movement? My 18 week old does that when he's trying to poop.
