When a newborn begins to smile and at what age it occurs consciously
Often, mom notices the smile on her newborn baby’s face in the first days after his birth. But most often this skill is acquired much later. Consider when a child begins to smile, how to speed up and not miss this important event.
According to statistics, the baby who gets full nutrition and care begins to smile from the first days of his life. And my mother, seeing a charming grimace on the face of his crumbs, experiences incomparable joy. However, such a reaction is not yet conscious. The newborn does not yet know how to manage his facial muscles well, so all their movements occur spontaneously.
By the end of the first month of life the baby is already able to clearly distinguish emotions from two opposite categories: I’m happy! And I feel bad! . He shows his feelings, feeling the native smell of his mother and looking at her joyful face, or kuksitsya if hungry and wants to sleep.
If mom and dad rarely openly rejoice and often look focused and thoughtful, do not ask the baby for expressed feelings. You can receive a response from the child if you regularly show him a sincere smile.
The infant, like a sponge, absorbs all the actions of the surrounding people. Looking at their parents, they adopt their facial expressions in this or that situation. Therefore, if adults rarely show emotion, the baby will also be restrained. And if you regularly curl in front of him, showing expressions of delight, laughter, surprise, not only with the voice, but with facial expressions, the little one will copy them and express them if necessary.
Teaching a child a new skill is very simple. To do this, it is required to devote most of their free time to crumbs, postponing the housework. You can read short poems, pushing words with facial expressions. You need to sing, play, do massage and show your positive emotions.
