    Of course! Why wouldn't it be? A smiling baby is a happy baby!
    eniitan replied to lenono97's response:
    watched one programme on TLC tv station and one of the symptoms of one disease was that the baby was smilling too early, this is my first and i don't know when they are supposed to be smilling. thanks anyway

    I know which episode you were talking about. My baby is 11 weeks old and he began smiling immediately and now he smiles a lot. The mystery diagnosis on TLC was an excessively happy baby. The baby smiled even when he should be crying. You can't read into those things too much, you'll drive yourself insane. There were other things that baby did too to concern the parents so unless your baby is showing symptoms of something being wrong you should just enjoy that beautiful heart melting smile.
