About Baby

Self - awareness test of the baby

Performing the self - awareness test of the baby is quite simple. If you put a red dot on the baby’s forehead and show him the mirror, notice what he does. If they rub the dot, they are aware, else not.

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.

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.

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.

Mother recognition by a baby

Although babies are able to sense the smell and voice of their mother, but they are not able to make out the difference between their and mother and other adults quite quickly, this takes time.
