Find out why your 10-month-old baby looks at your facial expression when he is uncertain about a situation.

Visual Development and Social Referencing

When your baby is uncertain about a situation, he will look at your facial expression. If you are smiling, he will continue with his desired activity. If you frown, he will stop what he is doing. This remarkable human infant skill develops from markedly improved vision, babies' interest in human faces, and his realization that he is uncertain about a situation.
