As a parent you are studying developmental psychology every day. So we’d like your help collecting data on what situations and events make your baby laugh. We believe these will give us a new understanding of infant development.
We’d like to hear about an single recent event that your baby found funny. What happened? Who was present? Why do you think your baby found it so funny? Think of this as a field report on the behaviour of the most remarkable creatures on the planet.
Grandparents, brother, sisters and friends can also tell us about a memorable time they made a baby laugh.
What has made your baby laugh recently?

Another time, a few months later, he began laughing hysterically when a friend was eating noodle salad and letting the noodles dangle from her mouth. He also laughed quite hard, when about two and half months and onwards from my saying ba… banana.
