Asked a question 6 months ago

Hi Doctor. Is it normal for babies to suddenly stop smiling and chuckling a lot? My baby is 5 months old, feeding well and is active. But has significantly reduced smiling and chuckling

Where am I?

Hi Neha

If your baby is continuing to do all other things such as eye contact and smile, holding objects, trying to or rolling over etc then it might just be something transient that he/she has reduced chuckling. Keep a close watch though and it’s commendable that you have noticed it. If you have any other concerns please do bring it to the notice of your baby’s pediatrician.
