About Baby

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.

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!

Higher ratio of birth mark

The ratio of birth mark among babies is very high i.e. one baby born out of every 3 babies have a birth mark present on their body. Baby girls have more probability of birth marks than baby boys.

Better immunity with mother’s milk

Babies who are breastfed for up to three months continuously have better immunity and comparatively higher congenital development than other babies who are breastfed for lesser time duration.
