At what age can you tickle babies?
Morley explains that generally babies do not begin to laugh until around 4 months of age, and their laughter in response to being tickled may not begin until around 6 months.
Should you not tickle babies feet?
It appears the answer is no.
The researchers found that six-month-old infants make that mistake too, but four-month-old infants get it right more often. In other words, infants actually outperform older infants and adults in correctly placing where they’ve been touched when their feet are crossed.
Why you shouldn’t tickle your child?
The main thing that makes tickling problematic is that children may not be able to say when they want it to stop. Laughter is an automatic response to being touched by a tickler—it’s not a response that the child can opt out of. This puts the tickler in charge of how much or how long the child laughs.
Is it true if you tickle a baby’s feet they will stutter?
There is no semblance of truth that tickling can cause stuttering in a child. Stuttering may begin to manifest in the early ages of the child’s development, but the actual cause is yet to be conclusively discovered.
