About Baby

Child understanding of Peek a boo

Babies just love Peek a boo is because every time they see the same object, they think its new. Also babies lack object permanence ability. This is the sole reason they never go tired of playing this game.

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.

Fatty baby or bouncy baby?

When babies are born, for the coming next 6 months, their weight doubles up. The reason behind this is that they sleep for about 14 – 15 hours a day and rest of the time they just sit, eat and sleep. Now you know why they double up in weight.

Nearsighted

Now if you are confused as to what this means, is simply stating that new born babies are able to clearly see things that are close to them. Hence they can only see close things properly. Maximum clear vision is up to 12 inches.

Born with blue eye colour

Most of the new born have blue eyes right after their birth. This is because of the absence of the melanin tissue during birth. After the age of six months or one year in some cases, the melanin tissue starts getting activated, changing their eye colour.
