In brief: Around 3 months

Children smile from an early age.
A baby born at term usually will smile spontaneously (for no apparent reason) once in a while, by his 2-month check-up. By his 4-month check-up, he should be smiling when played with, when spoken to in a nice way by his parents, when tickled, etc... Some babies are more shy, and will smile for parents but not for other relatives or strangers.
