About Baby

Forgetting the mess babies create

Babies when grow up usually forget the memories of the first three years of their life, hence all the struggles and annoyances your baby has put you through, he/she will eventually forget. They remember absolutely nothing!

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.

Sign Language Experts

Babies are experts on sign language. They are able to understand the sign language much more quickly after birth than talking. Babies easily catch and understand the meaning of goodbye, hello, cuddling and kissing and waving.

Born with blue eye colour

Most of the new born have blue eyes right after their birth. This is because of the absence of the melanin tissue during birth. After the age of six months or one year in some cases, the melanin tissue starts getting activated, changing their eye colour.

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.
