Noisy Newborn

Ds is 19 days old and is incredibly noisy! He doesn't cry (thank god) but there is a constant soundtrack of grunts, snorts, clicks, pops and occasionally even some growling.

He also has a noise he makes when he needs something (nappy change, boob) that sounds like an old man grumbling grin I don't remember dd being this noisy!

He also has an outbreak of baby acne which I read can coincide with a baby's fussy period. He will also fuss at the breast and struggle to latch on occasionally.

Does this all sound normal? I'm worried it could be a sign of colic or reflux as dd was a totally silent baby that just locked onto the breast and stayed there for hours.

Oh bollocks, meant to post in chat angry

Yes it's normal, really annoying tho! My DH used to call it creaking, as in ' I couldn't sleep last night cos the baby was fucking creaking' grin

DD is 3 months old and is exactly like this smile all normal

Yes creaking is a good way to descibe it!

Yes, I didn't get a wink of sleep with DS. The grunting and snorting and creaking went on forever. With DD I was much more relaxed and just ignored her noises half the time, so it definitely seemed she was a much better sleeper!

All normal. Both of mine sounded like they'd swallowed a zoo, at that stage.

DD had terrible baby acne. GP had to calm me down as I was convinced she had meningitis confused

My newborn is exactly the same. Lots of grunting, sighing, snuffling, croaking, squeaking and farting!!

But thankfully not much crying, unless he's really ravenous.

We call it 'witching' with 6 week old dd. She only does it lying on her back. But she is quite colicky/ refluxy - but likewise very little crying, just very uncomfortable sounds. Ds was exactly the same but improved around 12 weeks.

Mine does this too - I love it, think his old man noises are adorable (and much better than crying!)

My DD sounded like a truffle pig smile

SquinkiesRule Sat 07-Jan-17 15:18:57

annlee that is a perfect description of what my Ds2 sounded like it was funny to hear all the snuffles and grunts.

So normal. No one ever told me how loud a sleeping newborn actually is, mine snorted, grunted, squeaked, hiccuped, sighed, farted and burped practically the whole night long.

Try Aveeno for the acne. It cleared dd's up beautifully. Gp prescribed it.

statetrooperstacey Sat 07-Jan-17 16:16:10

Worse tho is when the creaking stops . . . . . . . And you propel yourself out of bed in a panic! They're fine, obviously, you return to bed, settle down and the creaking starts again. . . . It's just all a bit shit isn't it?!grin and that's all in between the feeding, that's why they are cute it stops u leaving them in the garden for the foxes, Best luck x

MummaGiles Sat 07-Jan-17 16:17:38

Had completely forgotten about this, but yes DS did this too. That's why he was out of our room within a few months.

CupofTeaTime Sat 07-Jan-17 16:21:41

Yep! My 7 week old is the same. Sometimes she's so noisy we can't hear the tele when she's asleep! Hoping it's a phase

Bungleboggs Sat 07-Jan-17 16:27:09

My premmie was very grunty

BellyBean Sat 07-Jan-17 17:16:16

My friend said dairy made the acne worse.

Namejustfornappies Sat 07-Jan-17 17:21:49

Omg I was so shocked at how noisy pfb dd1 was! grin
All 3 of mine have been noisy but the latest had the cutest little old man oomph sound whenever he stretched out grin

Sleeping next to My premmie DS was like sleeping next to a train. Nobody warned me so I thought all the noise was something wrong! Apparently it's normal - He's (mostly) outgrown it at 3 months

Tobebythesea Sat 07-Jan-17 18:06:21

Yep. Newborns sound like you are sharing a room with a caveman.

MetalMidget Sat 07-Jan-17 18:13:26

My lad went through a phase of grunting whilst slamming his legs into the mattress. And the farting, oh god, the farting.

He's now 5 months old. He's quieter when he sleeps, but when he's awake he'll yell when he's tired. AAAAAHHHH. He also makes very sweet sounds, like a tiny raptor.

adjsavedmylife Sat 07-Jan-17 18:19:48

Yep. Like sharing a bed with a baby warthog

Honeybee79 Sat 07-Jan-17 18:22:45
