Babies are the most beloved creatures of our world and here are 10 mind blowing facts about babies that will change the way you think about babies.
New born can’t cry
It might seem unusual to hear this at first as we are all very used to of hearing that babies start crying the moment they are born, but they technically can’t cry. They might scream and howl but they cannot shed tears due to undeveloped tear ducts. They are developed mostly when the baby is 3 to 4 weeks old and in some rare cases, it might take 4 to 5 months.
Even if you baby has healthy hair now, there is no guarantee they will be the same in the next few months. Baby hair fall out and are replaced in the next year. Some babies might previously have straight or curly hair and it can be changed afterwards.
Even though babies don’t like sleeping a lot, but their brain cannot function for more time. A baby is only awake or conscious for around 3 minutes in one hour and is sleepy in the rest.
Their music taste hasn’t changed
If there was a song that you used to listen to in pregnancy, you baby can still recognize it. It has built a sense of it and those songs can actually be used to calm the crankiness in your baby.
Babies laugh around 300 times each day
Who doesn’t love a laughing and happy baby? As it turns out, babies laugh more than 300 times each day while an adult only laughs 60 times a day hardly. This is just a tiny reminder that your baby is happy and enjoying its life, maybe even more than you.
Baby cries can tell a lot about their mother
In the last 3 months of pregnancy, babies start picking their mother tongue and cry in that accent too. They have already developed a sense of accent and as they grow, they keep on adapting more and more. You can always distinguish between babies from different races just by listening to them crying.
Babies communicate already
You must have seen babies waving and trying to speak already, well, that is exactly what they are always trying to do. Even though they cannot speak, they are still picking up the gestures and the more active the baby is, the more talkative it will be when its grown.
All babies are momma’s boys
Babies like when their mothers talk to them more than anyone else. They also prefer high pitched voices more than the low-pitched voices. This is one reason why people keep their pitches high while trying to talk to baby. Even though most people don’t notice, but babies give a better response to the high-pitched voices. The low-pitched voices might often go ignored.
Babies smile when its time
A baby is not able to actually smile until it’s at least a month old. You can try your best by keep making funny faces and everything but, they will only give their first smile when it’s finally time.
Babies swallow and breathe at the same time
Ever wondered how babies can keep chugging on the bottle all the time? They have the ability to both, swallow and breathe at the same time.
Nose block is the only thing that can stop them from doing that. It is also one of the reasons why babies get so cranky when they catch a cold. They can also breathe 40 times per minute while adults only breathe 15 to 20 times per minute.
