  • It's normal. They don't laugh out loud until later on, I think my daughter was round 3 -4 months.

  • All babies hit milestones at different rates. My booger started laughing around 2 months. He smiled in his sleep around 3 weeks.

  • Yes, my baby still doesnt have a "normal" laugh. She is 4months and the doc said it is normal. And she doesnt know what to do when I try to tickle her- she gives me an evil face!

  • It is normal. my son didn't laugh till he was around 3 months old. BTW you look familiar.

  • I cant remember...but i'm pretty sure my son was about 3 m/o when he first laughed and smiled. every milestone happens at different times! dont be concerned if he hasnt laughed yet!

  • My daughters both didn't smile even until 7-8 weeks. My first daughter didn't laugh forever... maybe 5 or 6 months (then she belly laughed so hard at her dad's physical comedy she'd make herself throw up), my second would giggle around 3 months. Way too soon, I'd think.

  • My daughter started smiling at around 1 months and started laughing (or should I say laugh because its just one, lol) right before/after 2 months.

  • Why do you care? You don't care about him right.....? At least that's all you say in all of your posts
