Observe the infant when she is playing near adults and siblings / others.
During the peek-a-boo game, the adult can change from a smiling to a sad face.
When the adult changes emotional expression, the infant looks confused and works to get the parent to smile.
Encourage parents to use clear facial expressions and inflection with their communication to help the infant understand the emotions associated with the communication.
