    But he cannot seem to get out a giggle or laugh.

    I blow in his tummy and he gets a big grin and excited but only gets like a small grr out.

    My little boy took forever for like a belly laugh. He would do a small ha ha, and grin but nothing huge. I don't remember when he started doing it a lot....maybe around 10+ months? He now giggles non stop all day long!!

    He's still pretty young. Most babies don't start laughing until around 4-6 months, and in the beginning it's not very frequent and doesn't always sound like what you'd expect. Give him some time ;)

    He's pretty young. The laughing should come within a few months. :)

    We had smiles but not laughing at that stage. Now, at 16 months, she laughs all the time. Don't worry...he will get there soon!

    My 8 month old rarely laughs either! For that she smiles pretty much all the time. She's a very happy baby just without many laughs!

    By the way - as others have mentioned, he's still pretty young! Both my girls didn't start laughing until 4+ months.

    Getting a proper giggle out of Joni was like drawing blood from a stone until around 10 months. She used to do a single 'haaaa' but that was it. Now she's a proper little giggler! X

    My LO barely laughed either... Then on the rare occassion you did get her to laugh, two seconds later, she's over it. But the older she got, the more smiley she is and the more she laughs. Now at 8m.... When she feels like it, she'll start chuckling away.... But only when she feels like it. She's very content though, and everyone always comment on what a happy and good baby she is...but giggling? Only if she finds you very funny... And boy do I still have to work at them.

    My son (4.5 months) laughs, but you can't really make him laugh. He finds the most random things funny! The most recent thing has been the past two nights... apparently it's hilarious when I take off his clothes for the day to get him ready for bed!

    Cute!
