About Baby

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.

Big Baby Eyeballs

The eyeballs of a baby normally look larger as compared to the size of the head of the baby and or its complete size. This is because their eye balls as compared to human eye balls are just about 75%. This means only 25% eye balls grow at a later stage.

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!

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!

Foetus responds

Absolutely, everyone knows that the foetus present inside the womb of the mother can hear. But something which you did not know is that foetus responds to sound properly i.e. in a similar manner as they respond to any kind of internal stimulation.
