  • ask his dr. but at that age i would not worry to much, just keep an eye out when he gets older.

  • My 8 mo old is doing the same thing. I heard that it is not a problem unless they continue doing it past about a year old or so, I think. I hate the noise as well...drives me crazy!

  • it drives me crazy too.... I cringe everytime he does it... but if it's making him feel better I think I can handle it
