About Baby

Hearing not up to mark

Faster breathing rate

Yes, the breathing rate of the new born baby is faster than that of an adult. The new born babies breathe for about 40 times per minute. This is around 2 times faster rate than that of an adult.

Infantile Amnesia

Since babies are not able to recall what they have done till the age of 3, their recording machine in the brain is not functional till then. Hence, they don’t remember pretty much anything once they grow up.

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.

Born with blue eye colour
