Does/did anyone else have a baby who actually growls? By "growl", I mean a deep, way-down-in-the-throat, gutteral kind of noise. It sounds almost exactly like a puppy might sound while playing tug-of-war. My DD (6 months old) has been grunting and making straining noises for a few weeks, but over the past few days, she has begun growling at toys, at us and sometimes just out of the blue. She doesn't seem unhappy- in fact, she often smiles after making the noise- but I have to admit, the sound is pretty eerie.


Did anyone else's little one do this?

my son did that for the longest time, every time he did it strangers would look at each other and say "well we know what he's doing" thinking that he was trying to poop but i'd just explain "he's just a growly baby, thats how he talks"

he's now 19 months and doen'st growl so often but he still growls

DD growled when she was 5 months or so. It only lasted about a week, which is shocking considering how much attention she got for it- it was hysterical! She stopped for some time, but not before I got it on video.

She does it every now and again. My mom thinks she's imitating the cat, who has a big, obnoxious mouth. It's definitely a good mood, chatty, experimenting with sound kind of thing with her.

oh, yeah, K loves to growl, he's a "blanket monster" lol! Benny plays this game where he'll clmib under a blanket and pretend he's a blanket monster and one day he pulled the blanket over the baby, too, who started growling. It was a riot! He's into making all sorts of noises, the growling is one of the less disturbing

This is so funny, I read through this thread about a week ago and thought... hmmm... my baby hasn't growled yet. But then about two days later, he started really GROWLING! It was so funny. Out of the blue. And now he's been doing it more and more every day. This morning he woke up next to DH and I and just started going, "GrrrrrRRRRRRRR!" It's actually pretty cute even though it was 6am.


He seems to do it when he's concentrating.

That's what my DS does! That's the noise his daddy and I make when we want to make him laugh, and now DS does it, too. It's so cute

Ha ha that's funny
My ds (10 mos.) doesn't growl, but he does hiss like an angry cat. We think it's hilarious and always hiss back at him.

My dd is almost 14 months and is a grunter, but not as bad anymore. I think it is so funny, as well as her now. She does it and then starts laughing. Her new thing, though is that she makes a lion roar! That cracks me up.

This is an old thread-
but my babe certainly growls! Began it about 2 months ago (she is now 9 months)... it's developed from an accidental sound into a way of expressing excitement, humor, contained frustration- but it's also refined now to the point where we have growling conversations!


I've come to love it! Apparently it's quite normal, to look at utube!

Ha! I'm glad this thread was bumped. It is cool to hear other babies do this! My son, almost 10 months, started growling a few weeks ago. I'm convinced it is because of our little dog who play growls when we play. First it was that ds would whimper when she did, imitating her.. then he started doing the growl when I was playing tug with the dog. So cute and funny!
