  • if his smiles are in response to your voice or certain activities im sure they are real. my nephew did his first real smiles at 3 weeks becaue we were making him clap his hands!

  • most babies start social smiling somewhere between 4 and 6 weeks. They are more than likely REAL smiles,..especially if you were just talking to him or showed him a toy etc.

  • Who says either are "fake" smiles? :) But I know what you mean lol. They're more than likely "real" smiles, but either way, like elizabiza said, soak it all up!

  • My daughter started smiling when she was two days old. And no, they weren't fart smiles; I could tell.

  • My kids all started smiling around 6-7 weeks. Within a couple of weeks they were warming our hearts with their sweet lil smiles all the time, so yes, they are more than likely real smiles - especially if it is in response to something or someone.

  • I figured it out when my son would see me and smile. When I'd do something and he'd react with a smile.
