If you are looking for a child care centre in Cannington or anywhere in the Perth area, you probably know that babies are amazing. But do you know how amazing? Here are seven amazing things you might not know about babies.
They Can Remember and Learn In Utero
A recent study concluded that babies do remember stories read to them in utero. This opens up a world of possibilities.
They Can Tell the Difference Between Right and Wrong
Another study shows that babies can already tell the difference between right and wrong by the time they are six months old. The study was conducted with “helper” puppets and “hindering” puppets interacting with another puppet pushing a ball up a hill. The babies were more attracted to the helper puppets.
They Already Recognise the Sounds of Their Native Language
By the time babies are 30 hours old, they already react more strongly to sounds in their native language than sounds of foreign languages.
They Recognise Their Mother’s Voice in the Womb
Not only do babies already know their mother’s voice at birth, they recognise it in the womb. That is why they react and respond to their mother’s voice above all other voices and sounds.
They Have More Bones Than Adults Do
While adults have 206 bones, babies have 300 bones. They reduce this number to 206 as cartilage fuses with bones and bones such as the sacrum and coccyx fuse together.
They are Comparatively Stronger Than Adults
The grip of a baby is strong enough to hold its own weight. This is called the palmar grasp and is present until the baby is around six months old.
Babies Can Already Judge Character
While babies learn by copying adults, they are more selective than one might think about who they copy. A recent study shows that babies are nearly twice as likely to imitate rational behaviour as they are irrational behaviour.
