    Totally normal, we didn't get a half smile until about 8 weeks and then from 9weeks she never stopped. So she was late with smiling and late with laughing too but has been ahead with everything else!! xx

    They all are different, not to worry. She'll be smiling soon, and laughing usually comes later. Mine started smiling at 5 weeks and is just now starting to laugh. x

    My little one started hesitantly smiling around 7 or 8 weeks and now is a grinning machine at 9 weeks. You are a bit early, don't stress, it will start occurring soon. THey usually start in their sleep, mine did anyway :)

    My LO had his first smile in response to me at 4 weeks. They came VERY few and far between until about 9 weeks though. You still have plenty of time, don't stress :)
