Parents’ Guide to Understanding Baby’s Smile



Is there anything better than a smiling baby? Babies start smiling between 6 and 12 weeks but you may notice a smile soon after baby is born. That’s a reflex smile and can be caused by sleeping or going to the bathroom.

A real smile happens in response to baby hearing or seeing their parent or a caregiver.

Tips to encourage baby to smile:
• Give them plenty of love and affection. There’s no such thing as spoiling baby with too much attention.
• Play with them. Find ideas for playing with your newborn.
• Use exaggerated and silly responses with talking to baby.

After baby has mastered smiling, they’ll start cooing. After cooing comes giggling. So what’s better than a smiling baby? A giggling baby!
