Growling at the boob?

Yup! That says it all!
DS grunts and growls while nursing! I don't think he's in pain. But what is the deal? My DD never did this!
Any thoughts?
LOL

Well, you know how "men" are about eating (on second thought, you know how they are about boobies )

My boys did that too. Just figured they were happy campers!

Re: Growling at the boob?

That's funny...my ds does it too. I never thought of it as growling, but that is what it kind of sounds like. I have just always assumed it is because he is happy.

My DD does that at night when she appears to be famished. I think it is cute but she is only 3 weeks old.

My guy coos while nursing when he's happy - it's sort of a little sighing noise every time he sucks. When he grunts and growls at the breast, it usually means he's trying to poop!

My now 4 year old dd has always hummed while eating. She did it at the breast from day one and is still humming today as she eats.

Munchkin does this too, especially when she's extra hungry.

My little caveman does this too! He grunts and bangs my chest while he nurses. My daughter never did....she cooed and hummed, but never grunted and growled!

I figure it's a guy thing.....

LOL!
So it's kinda normal for a "little man"!? HA!

He's so darn cute when he does it, but I just didn't know why!
Must be out of enjoyment! HA!

Re: Growling at the boob?

DD#2 loves her boobs. It is her boobs. Do not take the boobs away for you shall anger franken-baby (when she startles she sticks her arms straight out, and we've lovingly come to call it franken-baby). She'll make little growling noises sometimes she coo's. When she sees/hears/smells me she's been known to squeal slightly, and she will also smile and "look" in my direction very intently. Again, let me state she LOVES her boobs.
