Here’s a fun way to keep track of your baby’s milestones!
First-time parents are usually excited about their babies’ development. No one understands that more than MAKUKU Philippines, the makers of Slim and Comfort series diapers. That’s why they launched the Share a Smile Baby Challenge.
Babies can smile as soon as they’re born. A newborn’s smile is called a reflexive smile. Internal factors can cause such smiles. These factors include passing gas, stool, or resting comfortably in their parents’ arms. Meanwhile, they develop a social smile at six to eight weeks of life.
At this stage, babies are growing up and figuring out human behavior. A social smile is the smile babies flash when their parents smile at them. Social smiling is important for babies’ overall brain development, so parents must pull out all the stops to encourage their little ones to smile. (Try singing to them; that usually works like a charm.)
During your baby’s two-month checkup, your pediatrician will ask you if your baby’s social smile has appeared already. So as a parent, you must keep track of your baby’s milestones, especially this one.
