  • my oldest would not laugh either.....she still doesn't laugh much. I thinkits more of a personality thing than something wrong. my girl is really reserved and a total introvert - she only gives the laughs sparingly. I'd enjoy what she gives you

  • My daughter doesn't laugh until I tickle her, and I mean REALLY tickle her. If I only tickle her a little, she just does this weird thing where she screams so high that it just sounds like air being pushed out of her mouth. That's what she does when she's excited, too. It's cute, but it's not laughter. And that's okay, it really is. Don't worry about it. (By the way, my daughter is 7 months old.)

  • My 3rd baby didnt laugh until she like a year old!! She would smile and coo and squeal, But she would NOT laugh :( I think some kids just have different personalities, She is 2 now and has the greatest little laugh!

  • My son also didnt laugh till around 7 mo so I wouldnt worry, they give specifics on the "normal child" and I think any mom would agree our kids are never in that area lol. Also they told me my son was chubby shoot he is 3 and is tiny everyone tells me so I wouldnt worry!
