According to The Pooch Times, humans learn empathy from a young age with babies developing the foundation for empathy at just a few months old.
As a two-month-old, a baby is focused on comfort and start to recognize their caretakers and soothing behaviors. They begin to pick up on these things to self-soothe, creating a foundation for comforting others.
As they grow, they start mimicking behaviors, and copying emotions. They like to make others laugh when they are close to a year in age.
By the time they are three to four years old, they are aware and begin to acknowledge their feelings.
