The first real smile of your baby will make an appearance somewhere between 6 and 12 weeks of life.
But, how we could know if it is a real smile or reflex smile?
Generally, reflex smiles tend to be shorter and occur randomly, when the baby is sleeping or tired.
Real smiles, on the other hand, occur in response to something, like seeing her mama’s face or hearing a sibling’s high-pitched voice, and they are consistent. When it’s the real deal, you will see the emotion expressed in your baby’s eyes.
