The first interaction that your baby will choose to have with you is a simple one. He will stare at you.
Then he’ll follow you with his eyes. Within a couple of months, he will smile. At you. On purpose. While he’s awake.
That is called the “social smile.” And it’s a big deal when he decides to lay one on you.
The social smile is such a huge milestone because it brings together many other elements of your child’s development.
