My Little boy stopped cooing a few weeks ago (4months)- about the same time he started rolling - befor he would always be oohing, gooing and gurgling and then it just stopped!
it does seem to coincide with when he became physically active, could this be why?
No problems with hearing and still squeals, laughs and smiles, good eye contact and gets chatted to alot etc.
did anyone else find this happened?
please help I'm so worried health visitor said not to worry but i can't help it!
My ds did this, whenever he learned or was in the process of learning something new (like rolling) other things would take a back seat for a while, once he was fully comfortable with the new skill, the other back seat areas would re emerge if this makes sense. He is now almost 3 and talks for England
just talk to him heaps and heaps about anything and everything, blow raspberries etc and he will start to imitate your noises and facial expressions after a while...even when he is not actively cooing etc he is storing up all the sounds around him for later
I have been talking so much to him, i noticed today actually he has been looking as though he's going to say the 'b' sound with his lips and he kind of forces a noise out if that makes sense? he's staring really intently so i suppose he must be taking it all in....... i'll feel so much better when i hear a few familiar oohs and aahs again
