  1. I can report that infant scientists are also interested in babies’ laughter. I am running a global online survey of what makes babies laugh. I believe that laughter helps mother and baby bond and that the changing ‘jokes’ that babies respond to reflect recognisable shifts in their cognitive development. You don’t laugh if you don’t get the joke and neither does your baby.
