Playing peekaboo behind the camera is one of the easiest ways to get baby to smile back at you. Most babies love a little peekaboo game and will go along with that for quite a few takes!

Another way to get baby’s attention and get them to smile is by making funny sounds! Animal sounds also work wonderfully.

Baby tickles! Babies love little tickles on their bodies and this works pretty much every time!

Get mom and dad to help make baby smile too! Parents know just what makes them giggle.
