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!

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.

Infantile Amnesia

Since babies are not able to recall what they have done till the age of 3, their recording machine in the brain is not functional till then. Hence, they don’t remember pretty much anything once they grow up.
