About Baby

What babies do in womb?

Babies in the womb just don’t sit idle, they are doing so much in learning within the mom. They are learning to move their fingers, limbs, toes, sucking their thumb. At times, they are dreaming and yawning etc.

Laughing babies

Wondering what is this? Babies on an average laugh about 200 – 300 times in a single day. When comparing this figure to adults, they only laugh about 60 times a day. Probably that’s the reason you will see babies laughing just at about anything.

Nearsighted

Now if you are confused as to what this means, is simply stating that new born babies are able to clearly see things that are close to them. Hence they can only see close things properly. Maximum clear vision is up to 12 inches.

Babies are born swimmers

When babies are born, they can swim naturally. Babies also have the ability to hold their breath for a while. Unfortunately, they lose the ability of holding breath when they start growing up.

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.
