About Baby

Understanding unique things

When a baby is of age lesser than six months, repeated things occur to him as the same things. After the age of six months, the baby starts understanding the same thing occurring again and again is different.

Taste buds everywhere

New born babies are known to have taste buds at many places apart from the tongue i.e. the back, roof as well as the sides of the mouth. As they grow up, the sense of taste everywhere apart from tongue loses away!

Big Baby Eyeballs

The eyeballs of a baby normally look larger as compared to the size of the head of the baby and or its complete size. This is because their eye balls as compared to human eye balls are just about 75%. This means only 25% eye balls grow at a later stage.

Babies are born swimmers

When babies are born, they can swim naturally. Babies also have the ability to hold their breath for a while. Unfortunately, they lose the ability of holding breath when they start growing up.

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.
