3. A Happy Baby Looks at You and Smiles
This is one of the important signs of a happy baby. As soon as your child is two months old, he/she tends to look at you and smile.

Even before your baby is born, he/she is able to hear sounds that help him/her to be aware of various sounds and noises. He/she may not be able to understand the sound in the wombs but start to recognise after birth. You may notice his/her reaction to the sound of music, traffic, singing and even of toys. If he/she reacts to the new sounds around him/her, it is a sign of a happy and healthy baby.
5. A Happy Baby Tries to Communicate
If your child tries to communicate through cooing sound, smile and eye contact, it is a sign that your child is developing healthily.

If your child is frequently trying to interact with you, it a good sign that your child is growing happily and healthily.
