5 adorable ways to make your baby laugh!

July 13, 2018

There is nothing like the sound of a baby laughing and if it is the first time, for sure it is one of the most amazing moments in parenthood. It doesn't matter if it's just a little chuckle or a full belly laugh, once you hear your baby laughing you will not get enough of that adorable sound.

Did you know that laughing is actually one of the first steps for your baby to communicate with the world? This is also a great stage to chatter away with your baby as in this phase, anything from “Let's change your diaper so you're fresh and clean” to “what book do you want to read today?” will get his/her attention. Talk to your baby often as it is now at a stage where they understand more and more.

When does a baby actually start laughing?

Babies usually break their first chuckle between 3-4 months, but it can be a bit later for some babies. Once the first laugh is out, your baby might laugh at anything, even at its own little voice while laughing. Though your baby will laugh at a lot by itself, there are a few tips and tricks to break that adorable laugh you can't get enough of.

Today we want to help you make your baby laugh, and we promise it doesn't include having to rap to your baby “I like big butts” like Ross and Rachel had to do in Friends unless you want to of course! :)

The classic: Tickles! Gently tickle your baby's feet or stomach together with a funny sound. Look at your baby’s reaction, and make sure to not over do it.
