About Baby

Fatty baby or bouncy baby?

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.

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.

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.

Usage of Diapers & that too many

Yes, diaper changing sessions for babies is a long tern procedure which goes on till the baby is around 2 - 3 years of age. This means that on an average a baby changes about 8000 diapers till it is trained for toilet.
