Babies respond : differently to different kinds of touch. A healthy, full-term baby of 3-4 mos. who can giggle & laugh may seem to enjoy light touch on her tummy, but is probably responding to your leaning close & smiling/talking interactively.

Ex-premies & babies with atypical social reciprocity & social communication or sensory impairments often dislike being tickled. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
