Ok I know I am obsessed with milestones. But please bear with me, I am a bit overwhelmed these days.
So, when my son was 13 weeks; he started laughing and never stopped. He's actually quiet the comedian and laughs so often, even now at 3.5 years old. My daughter also laughed at 13 weeks, but then didn't do it again. There were two other possible laughs, but I am not sure because it was so quick. She's now 4 months old and doesn't laugh no matter how much we try.
Most sites say that laughing is expected at 3 to 4 months. But it seems that many people report that their babies laughed a bit later. Is that true? And why is their a wider range with laughing then with smiling, which is mostly expected between 6 to 8 weeks?

My DD has just gone 4 months and I would not say that she is laughing. She is the most smiley kid you have ever met and she will occasionally get extra excited and make a little noise and raise her shoulder with a big smile but I would more call that a little giggle.

I have b/g twins and my DS would give the most beautiful belly laughs from that age. He would laugh at anything and it was adorable. He is nearly three now and still has the best laugh.
DD on the other hand, she was/is so much more hard work. She would smile and maybe give a little giggle but it was never one of those proper baby giggles that just make you laugh as well.
As they were twins the difference was very noticeable but as she was meeting all other milestones it never occured to me to worry. She just didn't find things that funny and was a much more serious child.
Try not to stress, your DD may just be the same.

My son is a comedian. He laughs at anything. I have a video of him as a baby, laughing hysterically just becsuse the water splashed in the bath lol. It's possible it's a temperament issue. I really wish she'd laugh though.

My second laughed at around 4 months and then only VERY intermittently for another 2 or 3 months. He is now 9 months and is extremely happy and smiley, but doesn't exactly laugh heaps, maybe a couple of times a day.
