Baby trying to get sound out but can't?

I've posted about my DD previously (thread - did anyone's baby stop cooing for over a month). I updated the thread but just wondered if anyone knew of a reason she may be doing this as I figured most people wouldn't read the last update.

Basically she stopped making any cooing noises at 10 weeks. She's now 18.5 weeks & is still silent. She can cry & scream when upset. She rarely laughs.

What I have noticed is that she's started to attempt to make noise but can't seem to get it out. It's like it's stuck in her throat. She'll hold her breath as if to make a sound and she will really try to make a noise but then nothing will come out & she'll just exhale again.

Sometimes she coughs or almost chokes doing it but I think she is definitely trying to make some noise.

Can anyone tell me if this is normal or why she might be doing this?

I haven't read your previous thread, but it might be worth filming this and having a chat about it with your GP.

Here's an example of her doing it.

All of my three dcs did that at a similar age.
No clue why though!
Now they wont be quiet <sigh>
