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.

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.


Now if you are confused as to what this means, is simply stating that new born babies are able to clearly see things that are close to them. Hence they can only see close things properly. Maximum clear vision is up to 12 inches.

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.

Child understanding of Peek a boo

Babies just love Peek a boo is because every time they see the same object, they think its new. Also babies lack object permanence ability. This is the sole reason they never go tired of playing this game.
