Laughter has been proven to improve your immune system and help relieve stress. Research has found a number of biological benefits, all pointing to increased activity in the immune system and an overall decrease in stress hormones. I've talked before about the development of humor in children, but given the positive benefits of laughter and humor, there really is a good excuse to make your babies laugh, and for you to laugh along with them! You'll see smiles at around 6 weeks, proper laughter kicks in a little later at 3 -4 months. Make sure that you nurture humor, and make your kids' laughter infectious!
