About Baby

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!

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.

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.

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.

New born don’t have the reflex to blink

Correctly said, new born babies don’t have very good reflex actions. An example of the same is that they don’t blink their eyes very often as adults do, this may be the reason you will always lose in the eye blink game.
