Smiling. Milestone Q Kristin B. +down.45+ 1 child; Montgomery, Alabama 2042 posts

I know all babies are different...but LOs pedi gave me a book to read about "baby's first year" and in it it says that one of the milestones he should hit by the end of the first month is smiling while he's awake...

He hasn't. He'll be 5 weeks tomorrow.

He smiles like crazy in his sleep though...

How old was your LO when he/she smiled for the first time while awake? Is there anything I can do to help him get to this point? I play with him all the time, make funny faces, etc...

Don't remember any baby I've ever been around smiling so early unless they had gas witch was usually asleep. I wouldn't worry every place I look I am getting different ages for stuff. Every child is different.

My son socially smiled at 8 weeks. Before that it was smiling in his sleep.
Same thing happened with giggling. He did it in his sleep first.
