It is said that babies are small miracles of nature. After reading this list you will become even more convinced. Read these 10 amazing things babies can do.
10. Remembrances from the womb
An experiment was conducted where future mothers read their children in their belly. This experiment was performed with the book ‘The Cat in the Hat’. After they were born, these babies appeared to have a preference for this story. They apparently remembered the time they were still in Mama’s belly.
9. Estimation of Reliability
In another experiment , parents were invited to watch a box. Then they had to surprise and invite their baby to take a look at the box. Half of the group had a toy in the box, not at the other half. Teach baby’s by copying, so you can assume that all babies copied their parents and were surprised. Not so, in the control group without toys the babies did not copy the surprised behavior of their parents
8. Understanding probability
Probability is an abstract concept that is not good for everyone. Witness the many people who have taken part in the lottery all their lives. Babies who are eight months old can already make an estimate.The following experiment was conducted at the University of British Columbia: Babies showed a box of mostly white ping pong balls. Only a few were red. When random balls were taken out of the box, the babies stared longer for the combinations where red balls came in.
Experiments show that racism is at least a small part of natural human behavior. At the University of Washington, researchers distributed toys among babies. Sometimes honest, sometimes unfair. These children could choose who they wanted to play. In general, they chose the one who had the most toys.But when they had to choose between two babies with as many toys, but with a different breed, they chose the playmate that belonged to their own breed.
6. Strong babies
One of the reflexes of babies is the palmar grip . When you give a baby a hand, it will hold your hand or finger as hard as possible. Now it appears that they can carry their own weight by this force. Some babies can last for 10 seconds, others 35 seconds. Apparently, monkey babies also have this reflex, but they could hold on for longer.
5. Heal without scars
The technology is not silent. There are regular surgical procedures on babies still in the stomach with mom. In the meanwhile we know that in these operations the later baby will not have scars at the place where he was operated. A baby can also heal completely of deformities on his bones.
4. Learning to speak
We already wrote that babies can hear the voice of their mother in the womb. But there’s more. Now it appears that babies start learning their mother’s language when they are still in the stomach . Even when it’s not the mother who speaks, the babies recognize their mother tongue.
3. Emotional intelligence
When one took a brain scan in the part responsible for social interactions, one discovered something special in babies of a week old. This part of the brain revealed certain facial expressions and actions like laughing. When the children were confronted with adults who just played with the ball, these sections did not light up. This means that we are truly born as social beings who enjoy social interaction.
Believe it or not, but some things may be babies better than adults. When we look at monkeys as adults sitting next to each other, we can hardly distinguish them. Babies can do this . When they are six months old they are perfect. This skill to distinguish monkey faces fades with age. So far no one has found a theory why this is the case.
It is difficult to distinguish what was preprogrammed in your brain and what you learned, but if we are 11 months old, we obviously already know a lot. Researchers showed baby’s videos of things that could not. For example, a ball that does not take into account gravity, or an object that flies through a wall.The young children looked unbelieving. When they got a ball, they tried to see if that ball was what they just saw on the video. This proves that we as a small child already have a certain basic insight into physics.
