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.

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.

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.

Forgetting the mess babies create

Babies when grow up usually forget the memories of the first three years of their life, hence all the struggles and annoyances your baby has put you through, he/she will eventually forget. They remember absolutely nothing!

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!
