Hi mom's.. my 3 month old boy has started making chewing motions.. was just wondering whether anyone else's baby's does this and why? 

Same here! My three month boy also does it.

Hi Nisha! Even my baby used to do the same. It maybe due to teething.

Nisha, most likely your baby is trying to say "it's my cheese"! haha.

Jokes apart, most likely your baby is experimenting with different mouth motions and gearing up for teething too. You will notice more and more chewing motions as your child enters into soils food phase post 6 months.

It's totally normal. you will also see many other funny gestures like fish face, clicking sound etc. enjoy it.

thanks.. he does make a clicking sound also sometimes .. can he get his first tooth so soon..

As per Advised by our Expert Dr Arushi ( Pediatrician) -
This is normal. Nothing to worry
It's a natural process for future learning of eating

My baby also started chewing motion
