    Default Can your 1 year old curl their tongue?

    My 6 year old can, but I can't remember what age I asked him to try copying me do it (at which point he just did it, so I knew right then that he could). My DD is 21 months and I just curled my tongue in front of her. She poked her tongue out but it was in no way curled, so I don't know if it's too early to tell or just that she can't.

    If any other tongue curlers want to test their 1 year olds that would be great!

    My 17 month DD can. The other girls could around a similar time. Myself and DD2 can also "do the 3 thing" as our family call it haha

    My kids have been way older, like 8 or more when they learned.

    Yes! My 11 mth old DD can - she doesn't realise she can but does it when she's concentrating on something - cute!

    It's actually genetic, you either can or you can't, just so you know (you can't 'learn' it).

    So I guess DD can't then, she keeps just poking her tongue out when I do it

    D
    Actually it is a myth that its genetic. Google tongue curling studies from the University of Delaware, or monozygotic twin studies of tongue curling. It can most definitely be learned and have non-genetic influences.

    I saw a little baby (maybe around 1) doing it in a pram at the shops tonight

    Neither of my 2 kids can do it yet ... dd is only 21 months though.
