Adam Still Hasnt Smiled At Me :(

Hi my son will be 7 weeks old tomorrow and still hasnt smiled at me yet Is this normal ? Im sure my daughter smiled at me way before this age ? He smiles in his sleep which is so adorable, but I cant get him to smile at me....But I must admit its really only been the last week that he is starting to be more aware of his surroundings....Im wondering if he is a little bit behind as I had him at 37 weeks gestation?

Haylesmum,

Hi there. No stranger here. Supposively you are supposed to count their age from due date when looking at milestones. Most babies become social at 6 weeks old, so give your little one about 3 weeks to smile. It'll happen

I think they (The all knowing THEY) usually say it's around 8 weeks. So throw in the fact that your little one came a bit early...sounds just normal to me. But I know how it feels. It's like "come on little guy...give me something here!" It makes all of the hard work worthwhile!!!

Re: Adam Still Hasnt Smiled At Me :(

I've read they smile at you 6 weeks from their DUE DATE...and weren't you induced 3 weeks early? Ammalin was 9 days early. She's 9 weeks old and she smiled at me about a week and a half ago, at 7.5 weeks. So I think that theory is right.

Re: Adam Still Hasnt Smiled At Me :(

Hi angelbyheaven, Im happy to say Adam has smiled at me a few times A couple of people pointed out to me that I should be going by his actual due date from pregnancy to what milestones he will follow, so he is really 3 weeks behind in his actual age, so Im not too worried..I guess some babies are just more demonstrative than others...My mother makes me laugh, she always says that my brother would only smile at HER and that wasnt very frequent LOL Thanks for asking about us
