I have read that a baby should definately smile by the age of 3 months and if it is done earlier it could be by accident, although my DS has smiled since he was 6 weeks old and you can tell its on purpose and the older he gets (he is now 9 weeks) the more he does it but dont be upset if he hasn't smiled any earlier as this is supposed to be normal
When they do it will light up your day

My baby started smiling at 6 wks. I thought it was wind at first but she smiles at me first thing every morning. Try and tickle your bub and see if you get a smile or smile at your bub while you talk to him/her.
Won't be long to you see it. Good luck!
My first smiled at 4 weeks, 2nd at 5 weeks and 3rd at 7 weeks. I think the amount of interaction plays a part too, as I think my 2nd and 3rd would have smiled sooner if they had more attention.
Mum said I smiled at 12 days or something really early like that.
3 under 3- 15 month gaps. Busy but loving it eìí?
