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.

Birthday blues

There are billions of humans present on the earth, this means the day your baby born, there were 9 million people who were born on the same day. Hence, your baby shares his or her birthday with about 9 million other people.

Hearing not up to mark

When new born babies are born, their hearing power is not complete i.e. 100%. The middle ear of the infant is filled with fluid which makes only partial hearing possible. Also, they are able easily able to recognize the voice of their mother.

The eyeballs of a baby normally look larger as compared to the size of the head of the baby and or its complete size. This is because their eye balls as compared to human eye balls are just about 75%. This means only 25% eye balls grow at a later stage.
