Is My Newborn Smiling …

Newborn Smiling

Baby Smiles

The language of babies is not just about crying. Babies enter the world with a purity of being that radiates unconditional love and simple joy. Babies spontaneously demonstrate this inner happiness the same basic way all human beings do, by smiling. Baby smiles are precious gifts. May you be blessed with many of them.

Old Wives’ Tale

Perhaps you’ve heard someone say, “That’s just gas,” in response to your newborn smiling. If you think about it, this comment seems contradictory. Gas usually produces pain, not smiles.

A smile is a smile is a smile. Why would you want to believe anything else?

For you and yours,

D. Fravert, RN

  1. I was old growing up that whenever babies smile, angels are actually playing with them, making funny faces which leads to them smiling. Yes, I think your baby is smiling and its one beautiful smile!
