About Baby

Laughing babies

Wondering what is this? Babies on an average laugh about 200 – 300 times in a single day. When comparing this figure to adults, they only laugh about 60 times a day. Probably that’s the reason you will see babies laughing just at about anything.

Loving female voice

Yes, this is a true and a known fact that babies love the sound and voice of a female and prefer the same over the voice of the male. This might be the reason why babies are more close to their age during infancy.

Infantile Amnesia

Since babies are not able to recall what they have done till the age of 3, their recording machine in the brain is not functional till then. Hence, they don’t remember pretty much anything once they grow up.

Swallow V/s Breathe

Normally people cannot breathe and or swallow at the same time, whereas babies are able to swallow as well as breathe at the same time. Hence now you know why a baby is able to drink milk that fast and breathe quickly at the same time.

No tears for the little ones

If babies don’t like anything, they will start making a shreaking voice and or crunch their face in a weird manner, but they actually can’t cry. Babies until few months old are not able to cry or take out tears.
