Newborns usually learn to smile after 10-20 days of birth or earlier. According to research, the earlier children like to laugh, the more intellectually they develop.
1. How many months can babies smile?
Normally, most babies can smile when they are 4-6 weeks old, but there are many children who have the ability to be “happy” much earlier, sometimes just a few days after birth, the baby has symptoms. smile even though it’s not clear. Starting with the smiles in the baby’s sleep, a little older, the baby can even giggle when dreaming.
Through research, child psychologists said: From the smile of an infant, we can also generalize about the state of intellectual development in children. Children who laugh early and like to laugh often have a superior ʙʀᴀɪɴ. On the contrary, if after 8-10 weeks of age, the child still does not know how to smile, you need to pay attention to the child’s intelligence to promptly improve.
For children with outstanding brain development, after only a few days of age, children have expressed their smiles in the most natural way. The smile has not yet come out out loud, but it also shows that the child has the ability to “recognize” about his ʙᴏᴅʏ. In addition, children also know through control from the ʙʀᴀɪɴ to express emotions and feelings on the face.
2. Children are easily “made fun of” by others
Some children, although very young, are very “smiling” with the people around them. Although the child may not yet realize what he is doing, such an optimistic attitude both delights others and shows that he understands how to interact with this unfamiliar world. This is a manifestation of intelligence, and at the same time, children grow up to be people with high EQ. Babies often show a smile to their loved ones.
Babies especially like to use smiles as a way to communicate with loved ones, showing that they are trying to build emotional relationships with the most important people in life. This is a way of positive emotional interaction, very beneficial for ʙʀᴀɪɴ development. After adulthood, children often have superior intelligence than humans. Not only the smile of an infant, other interesting expressions also prove that the child has high intelligence
3. Children always use their eyes to follow others
Although the infant’s eyes have already reacted to light, due to the small number of corneal cells, the eye muscles are not well regulated, so the vision is not sharp, the farthest range of vision is only about 60cm and the clearest is about 20cm.
When children are about 4-6 weeks old, if children often use their eyes to follow the activities of surrounding objects, it shows that their brains are very well developed. At 12 weeks, babies always follow their mother’s voice. Around 12-16 weeks old, babies can still see the way adults hold the bottle to feed, even smile.
4. Social development
Newborn babies will not be able to recognize others, anyone can hold them. But after 3 months of age, children begin to feel familiar – strange with people around. When a mother or a close family member passes by, children often smile to express excitement and joy. Sometimes even waving arms and legs amused.
After 6 months of age, babies will express fear, avoidance, and even cry when interacting with strangers. These social expressions prove that the baby’s memory is well developed, the ability to recognize and feel is also high, and the thinking ability is good when grown up.
