  • My son started doing little giggles at about 2 months, now at 9 months he cracks up about anything.

  • When my son was younger he would laugh, but never make any sound when he did just have his mouth all wide open and smile, he babbles and stuff so we know he can talk but he is 8 1/2 months old and is barely starting to laugh. It just depends on the baby.

  • My 3 1/2 month old son has been giggling since about 2 months, but he has given us 2 "real" laughs now since he was 3 months old. I think it's one of those things where every baby is different.

  • my son started at 3 months. But he doesn't just laugh out of no where. I have to make him laugh. And he only really does it if I shake my hair in his face or if I laugh then he'll laugh along sometimes.

  • my son is now 3 months old today.. yay!! anyhow, he has this little chuckle, its not a real laugh yet, but he's trying.. i'm sure in a couple of weeks he will get the full thing, but for now, he's only got a half laugh and a big smile for me.
