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.

No salt tasting power

New born babies don’t feel food is very salty or without salt. Kidneys of a new born baby start developing properly at the age of 4 months. Since the kidneys are able to process sodium, hence you know!

Understanding unique things

When a baby is of age lesser than six months, repeated things occur to him as the same things. After the age of six months, the baby starts understanding the same thing occurring again and again is different.

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.

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!
