When Did Your Baby Smile First

My son is 8 weeks old and has only smiled a few times...how about yours? He is a very content baby who likes to look around and loves looking at people, but he just doesn't smile often. I remember my dd (now 5 y.o), was smiling and giggling by 8 weeks. Would you be worried?

I don't think I would be worried, no....certainly not yet anyway. My daughter is 7 weeks now, and has been smiling for a couple of weeks already...it's great! Hubby & I cannot wait until she giggles, she's almost there! Every baby is different, maybe that's just part of their personalities....to smile a lot of a little.

Hi Taral, my lo didnt start smiling until almost 9 weeks, we'd get a tiny flash of one here and there and I was quite worried. Then all of the sudden one day she started and is smiling all the time now! It is so great, I fell in love with her all over again. Dont worry it will be before u know it!

My ds was around 8 weeks when he did his first real smile. He's now 11 weeks and hasn't giggled while awake, but does it all the time in his sleep! I wouldn't worry.
