Q Why is my three­month-old so grumpy? Other new mums com­ment that she looks so se­ri­ous!

Mother & Baby (UK) - - HERE TO HELP - Sarah Long, Telford CM

As is true with adults, some ba­bies nat­u­rally look more se­ri­ous than oth­ers. Rest as­sured this is noth­ing to do with her feel­ings or whether she loves you or not! We’ve all been con­di­tioned by ad­verts and TV to think that

all ba­bies are smi­ley, but they’re not! Your baby isn’t grumpy, she’s still learn­ing about the world, fa­cial ex­pres­sions and how to re­act to her en­vi­ron­ment. Ba­bies are great at mim­ick­ing us, so give her a big toothy grin, and chances are she’ll start copy­ing your ex­pres­sion.
