  • my DD started at 4 months.. they go through phases.. i think its just them testing their vocal chords out.. I wouldnt worry.. unless they are actually being rough and slapping you etc.. just find the funny side to it. for now. :)

  • Haha, my daughter does it and it scares the crap out of my brother! They watched her over the weekend and I "forgot" to mention her new growling ability so all of a sudden one night they heard what they said sounded the noise the Predator makes! Haha, scared em till they found out it was my 11 month old!!!!

  • it's normal... my youngest still does it (11months) and when she does all of the older ones join in the fun... it used to scare me at first cause it came out of no where when i was doing laundry but now she only does it when another one of my kids make the noise... they are my fun little animals

  • Yes. Both of my children have, and my daughter still does. It's helarious.
    It's simply them learning new ways of communicating, new sounds they can make, etc.
