I had our 6 week check this week and the GP said O should be smiling now. To be honset he always looks grumpy so I'm not surprised he hasn't cracked a smile lol. I remember C smiled at around the 6 week mark. Were your Lo's the same??

Around 6weeks I think. But they're hard to coax out for ages, lovely to get something back as the first weeks are so tough!

At 4 weeks he started opening his mouth like the beginnings of a smile. By 6 weeks he just started smiling properly. How can the dr say they 'should' be? Surely a few weeks difference makes no odds

5 weeks for us but they are all different x

I got my first definate response smile at 4 weeks when I went to pick him up out his crib one morning and he cooed and smiled at me. W is a happy wee thing and spends a lot of time smiling now. It doesn't get old though! Melts my heart every time he does it! :-)

Only in the last week and a half or so, so about 6.5 weeks

Morph lets hope our kids are as in sync as we were in our pregnancies xxx
And your ticker makes me chuckle every time.... You have the gestation period of an elephant hehehehe
Thanks ladies xx she also suggested that his back fontanelle isn't as close as she would like and that his head control is behind. I wonder if they take in to account that he was three weeks early?

4 weeks for us... Although no one believed me until they saw it for themselves!

About 5 weeks, but only when she saw fit. We could coax one out of her by about 6.5/7 weeks.

Both of mine were 4/5 weeks old when they first smiled.

About 4 weeks and can't remember with no 1!

C, occasionally from about 6 weeks, but only properly from about 9 (I remember because we went away when she was 9 weeks and that was the 1st time we got a proper smile on camera. S was 2 1/2 weeks and we got her 1st smile photo at 4 wks. Even the HV commented on how early she was smiling as she saw her do so when she was 3 wks.

S was just shy of 5 weeks I think though I already can't remember the date for his record book that I will never get round to filling in! I thought the range was quite big, like 4-7 weeks.
Like O, S has quite a grumpy old man face a lot of the time though I assume he isn't actually grumpy (naive?!) he looks like Yoda!
