About Baby

No salt tasting power

New born babies don’t feel food is very salty or without salt. Kidneys of a new born baby start developing properly at the age of 4 months. Since the kidneys are able to process sodium, hence you know!

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.

Better immunity with mother’s milk

Babies who are breastfed for up to three months continuously have better immunity and comparatively higher congenital development than other babies who are breastfed for lesser time duration.

Eyesight Versus Brain

A baby’s eyesight is sharper than his brain. A baby is able to see everything as an adult who has good eyesight, but since the processing of the brain is slow, they are not able to comprehend each and every thing clearly.
