About Baby

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.

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.

Born with blue eye colour

Most of the new born have blue eyes right after their birth. This is because of the absence of the melanin tissue during birth. After the age of six months or one year in some cases, the melanin tissue starts getting activated, changing their eye colour.

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.

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.
