No Smile Yet?? :(

DS is now 8 weeks and is not smiling....DD smiled at 6 weeks.....and so of course DH thinks there is something developmentally wrong with him! Maybe because he was a preemie??? Anyone else not being rewarded for your pain and suffering by seeing a smiling face???

I don't have that problem...Matthew smiled before he was 4 weeks old! So I figured that he would laugh a little early, too, but no dice. He's now a little over 9 weeks old and not even a giggle. I hope your DS smiles soon. I wouldn't worry about him being developmentally slow yet, though. Babies all develop at their own pace :o)

7 weeks now and no smile yet. I am worried something is wrong with him. I need a smile out of him just as a reward for all this work!!! I'm going to the ped. next week so if still no smile I'll ask him then.
