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!

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.

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.

Foetus responds
