About Baby

Mother recognition by a baby

Although babies are able to sense the smell and voice of their mother, but they are not able to make out the difference between their and mother and other adults quite quickly, this takes time.

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.

Self - awareness test of the baby

Performing the self - awareness test of the baby is quite simple. If you put a red dot on the baby’s forehead and show him the mirror, notice what he does. If they rub the dot, they are aware, else not.

Sign Language Experts

Babies are experts on sign language. They are able to understand the sign language much more quickly after birth than talking. Babies easily catch and understand the meaning of goodbye, hello, cuddling and kissing and waving.

No tears for the little ones

If babies don’t like anything, they will start making a shreaking voice and or crunch their face in a weird manner, but they actually can’t cry. Babies until few months old are not able to cry or take out tears.
