About Baby

Fatty baby or bouncy baby?

When babies are born, for the coming next 6 months, their weight doubles up. The reason behind this is that they sleep for about 14 – 15 hours a day and rest of the time they just sit, eat and sleep. Now you know why they double up in weight.

Foetus responds

Absolutely, everyone knows that the foetus present inside the womb of the mother can hear. But something which you did not know is that foetus responds to sound properly i.e. in a similar manner as they respond to any kind of internal stimulation.

Higher ratio of birth mark

The ratio of birth mark among babies is very high i.e. one baby born out of every 3 babies have a birth mark present on their body. Baby girls have more probability of birth marks than baby boys.

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.

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!
