Say, can anyone tell me what to do about this? I think he’s broken. And if he’s not, I’ll tell you what IS going to break pretty soon: MY WILL TO LIVE.

My little girl (2.5 yo) does this thing where she meows like a cat when she’s whiny. Have no clue where it came from. So instead of bitching, she meows.
Cute at first, but for the love of Jesus, when will it end?

Does he want something to happen with that gun that’s not happening?
my kid brings me one specific toy all the time that apparently does something magical that I don’t know about, because when I can’t make it happen he freaks.

other than that, with us that whining seems to precede illness or a tooth.

My 18 month old makes that sound all the time and it makes me want to tear my ears off the side of my head. But that would just be a mess and I’d have to be the one to clean it up, so it doesn’t really seem worth it. So I shove a sippy cup in his mouth and turn on the TV. Tah dah!!

You have no idea how hard I laughed at this.

BOTH of mine do this. BOTH. My recommendation? Remember those cry it out earplugs you had?

Nuff said.

My daughter did that, but usually when she was poopin’. ;o) But that video is classic. Cracked me up.

You need to change his batteries – STAT!
He sounds just like all of our battery operated toys right before they completely die. Too funny (to watch), not so funny for you. Good luck with that ;)!

I agree about the battery change! Also, Coffee Table of Death!!!

He humming……….but he is tone deaf.

He sounds kind of like a tiny little zombie.

I was going to say that the noises my child makes are INFINITELY more irritating and skin-crawling, but that’s probably because I only had to listen to Dylan for 38 seconds.

I’m not a mom so you know these two cents don’t amount to much. However I at least remember that I used to do this. For me it wasn’t frustration or satan or anything. I was just playing with my voice and kinda enjoying the rumbly sensation of it in my head. Maybe you can get him to make it more of a sing of you do it with him and then start changing tones and stuff – egging him on to do the same and then finally get past it by turning it into kindof legitimate language-like intonation? It sounds to me like he’s just doing a little voice-training.
Toddler-style. The babbler’s babble.

Dude’s learning to use his voice. I reckon he’s found a sound HE thinks he’s good at, so is making it. Because he’s so good at it. Yeah.

I’ve a got a boy three weeks older than Dylan and he is creaky too. Other annoying quirk that makes me want to stab myself? He points at “something” and says “Eh.” I hand it to him. He looks at it, drops it, and points again and says “Eh.” This happens anywhere between 3-10 times, depending on my patience level. Each time the “Eh” gets more demanding and frustrated, and by the last time, the “eh” can be translated to mean…”Look bitch, I am pointing right at it. How stupid are you, woman. Give it me now!”

I never get it right, and when I give up, he throws himself on the floor. It’s annoying. Toddlers are hard.

OMG, he could TOTALLY do Foley sound effects, if Foley is those guys who do sound effects and not just the guys who do catheters.

Also, my firstborn at that age used to make that basic sound, but with the word “mama.”

Him: Maaaaamaaaaaaaa. Maaaaaamaaaaaaaa. Maaaaaamaaaaa. Maaaamaaaaa. Maaaaaaamaaaaa. Maaaaaaaamaaaaaaaaa. Maaaaaaaaaamaaaaaaaa.

Me: *somehow deciding another baby was a good idea*

Hm. I think my son makes a similar noise when he’s just generally not happy about something – tired and hungry top that list. When he’s sick though? Every exhale is an opportunity to let us know that he’s suffering. He’s lucky that that is when we’re at our most patient.

Two of my three children made that sound. Each time the doctor told me making that sound calms the baby for some reason.

Wow, I had no idea that just about everyone’s kid does this, apparently. My daughter never did, so when my son started it up I thought he seriously had, like, hit some sort of weird repeat glitch in his brain. He’s actually beginning to grow out of it (KNOCK ON EVERY PIECE OF GENUINE WOOD IN THE HOUSE) but the random, ear piercing screams are still a main part of his repetoire.

Our doc calls it “low-grade whining”. I believe that’s code for “genetically encoded defect designed to weed out the impatient among us”. Darwinism at it’s finest?

When mine does that it’s his pre-puke alert function kicking in (which, coincidentally, started up this morning). So, uh, if it’s any consolation, at least Dylan isn’t accompanying the endless creaking with endless vomit! Yay!

Looks like he’s frustrated he can’t get the right grasp on the gun.

Yeah, I’ve got a two year old who’s generally been acting pissy like that for a couple of days. We think maybe teething. Dylan’s what, 15, 16 months old? Prime time for cutting canines, which are supposedly the very worst teeth at all to cut in terms of misery. Dispatch motrin at once, woman, or all hope is lost! Repeat at first sign of whining.

frustrated? singing? teething? Who know’s– no wonder you’re goings nuts. “right” sums it all up.

What if you fed your kid a red bull? I mean he can’t possibly get any MORE annoying than the ehhh ehhh thing, so just let him burn himself out with wild abandon for about one hour, then you get two hours of crashing and sleep. OR, you could get one of those kid leashes and just tie him up in the back yard when he’s driving you crazy. It’s springtime, he’ll be alright. You can put Dog out there to keep him company.

i don’t remember my kid making that noise, but i could just be blocking it out of my memory. it really does sound like a bordom, low-grade-whine. actually, i’m pretty sure there are days where *I* make that noise. i like Josh’s answer best. tie him out in the backyard with dog. do they make hamster balls in toddler size??

I would thump my son if he whacked me with a toy; same with the noise. I know, child abuse, but if I didn’t put my foot down on bad behavior at that age, what hope would there be later? he’s not in pain, he’s not trying to communicate, he’s just being a turd. and obviously it’s past the point of ‘cute’.

My husband always tells me that the kids (3 & 1) don’t understand “Dude…seriously”. I almost fell off my chair when I heard you say that!

My three-year-old son was standing next to me while I was watching this and as soon as the video ended he said, “Dude…seriously.”

My 16 month old came running over to see what I was watching, so apparently it spoke to him. He does the same thing. Dude. Seriously.
