  • Yes, he's just exploring his body and learning to make new sounds.

  • my son has been doing it since the day he was born. but it is his signal that he is getting hungry. if you are ten minutes past the smacking he will start to cry. I think it is normal as well.

  • Totally normal =] My DD will be 6 months old on the 3rd, and she does the same thing. I think it's cute =] It's probably entertaining to them, like their noises and whatnot.
