When do babies first laugh?


Was reading the "smile" thread and was wondering when babies typically first laugh? I just think things will be SO much easier when my baby starts smiling and laughing...right now it just seems like so much work with no "reward" if you know what I mean?

Ava had little giggles from about 8 weeks and had her first proper full laugh yesterday at me climbing up the bed towards her singing 'I'm coming to get you!' Lol, it was fabulous!

Zander did his first proper laugh at 11 weeks, but ever since then they have been very random. I think they've all been on accident cause he's looked shocked after each one, like "did I really just make that noise??" He's 15 weeks today, so I think it just takes some practice.

Omar laughed at 8 wks. I was changing his nappy & brought his feet too close to his face, & he burst into laughter. Since then, he laughs loudly at everything.

It's not entirely uncommon for some babies not to really laugh until 5-6 months which is not abnormal developmentally so while hopefully your LO laughs early and often, don't despair if it takes them a bit longer. It doesn't mean they're not happy, especially since you're likely to get a whole lot of smiles and other expressions of joy from them in the meantime. Ronan's far more interested in squealing happily than he is in laughing right now.
