It's an interesting topic, I have never thought about that at least going in depth. This experiment does show the principle of exchanging personal expressions is important to the living beings.

To me baby's smiling means asking for some kind of demand and needing for response from us.

Before having read the article, I was thinking baby's crying is just other way of telling us things.

Whenever babies cry, it means food time or wanting get their parents' attention for a need.

When people see baby crying that signals us check out what's happening to the baby. I agree what the article tends to show.

I am more keen on believing both the reflex response and cognitive approach. The reason could be depending on what kind of circumstances the baby's facing.

I think that's something to do with nonverbal means of communication. May we apply it to our pets, let's say a puppy wants some water/ food it certainly swings its tail or barks a few times. Once it has the desired outcome just keeps on trying for more similar results.

We have taken many things for granted including as natural as baby crying and smiling.

the body of that robotic baby looks a bit creepy, is full of wires

The experiment reaffirms the reinforcement theory. Humans or even our pets will do things that leading them to have advantageous outcomes. While they are trying, looking for opportunities is also taken place at the same time.

It's about exchanging smile with parent's caring.

Humans actually haven't known much about not only our world but themselves too.

It's a non-verbal means of communication. I think it might close to extrasensory perception/ telepathy.

I guess it must be our first learning stage, so baby crying implies that some kind of need has to be regarded by the parents. That recalls our forefather who might use a few basic sounds expressing simple scenarios at that time.

I believe crying stands for getting a sense of caring from other. Baby cries for reasons like asking for food, clean up, checking discomfort, and getting the parents attention.

What I remember from some of resources mentioned before that nonverbal communication is actually more complex than verbal/ language communication.

I agree with most of your viewpoints.

First thing that comes to mind is to understand more in-depth about how we could possibly communicate without relying on verbal languages. Because it could be adopted by those who are deaf-mute or even anyone who speaks different languages from ours, starting off from general & simple greetings, demands or commands.
