Babies Can Crawl As Soon As They Are Born

No really, they can! In 1987 the Karolinska Institute in Sweden compiled the findings of their study on the “Breast Crawl”. When the baby was dried and laid on a mother’s chest immediately after birth they were able to find her chest for feeding within an hour. Pretty impressive!

Newborns Recognize Mom’s Voice At Birth

When a baby is born, their hearing isn’t 100% up to par. The middle ear is still full of fluid which tends to impair the hearing somewhat. The one sound they are able to recognize is the sound of mama’s voice. They respond to this sound above all others.

Newborn Babies Don’t Shed Tears

They may cry a lot, but the fact of the matter is – newborn babies don’t shed tears. Why? Although the tear ducts and glands are working, they produce just enough tears to lubricate and protect your baby’s eyes. Look for those teardrops to start flowing between 1 and 3 months.

Babies Have More Bones Than Adults

Since adults are so much taller and wider than a baby you would naturally assume they have more bones. Right?

Wrong! A baby is born with 270 bones and by the time he reaches adulthood that number drops to 206! The reason for the loss of bones is due to fusion of the spine and skull as baby grows.

Babies Take More Breaths Than Adults

A newborn baby’s breathe is so much faster than an adult’s or child’s. Their normal breathing rate is in and around 40 times per minute, while an adult breathes between 12 and 20.

Most Babies Are Born With Blue Eyes

The color of the eye comes from the color particles behind the iris and in the main tissue of the iris. The melonin/pigment in the main tissue is in the most cases is not developed at birth which is why most babies regardless of their genetics are born with blue eyes. By 6 months to 12 months, the melonin is activated by your baby’s genetics (blue, brown, hazel, etc).
