About Baby

New born don’t have the reflex to blink

Correctly said, new born babies don’t have very good reflex actions. An example of the same is that they don’t blink their eyes very often as adults do, this may be the reason you will always lose in the eye blink game.


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.

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.

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.
