About Baby

Sign Language Experts

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.

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.

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!

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.
