To understand how amazing babies are, one only has to see them. Babies are full of energy even at the end of the day. Here are 10 amazing superpowers of babies that are literally going to give you goosebumps.
1. They have a strong palmar grip
Babies will instinctively curl their fingers around anything that touches their palms. For a newborn, the grip is so strong that it can support their entire body weight.
2. They are extremely comfortable underwater
Babies are natural swimmers until around 6 months of age. When a child is immersed in water, he naturally holds his breath, and his limbs begin to make swimming movements. This is called a diving reflex.
3. Babies have a super sight
At six months of age, babies have the most amazing eyesight and brain analysis abilities. Babies have an incredible facial recognition ability that gradually decreases as we grow old.
4 They swallow and breathe at the same time.
In infants, the pharynx lies higher than in adults. When they swallow, the entrance to their respiratory tract is not blocked by the epiglottis. Therefore, when swallowing, newborns can also breathe easily.
5. A baby can triple its weight without becoming overweight
In the first year of their lives, babies develop rapidly. During this period, the baby’s weight may triple. However, the child’s constitution is not affected in any way because it grows very quickly.
6. If necessary, babies can sneeze continuously
The nasal passages in newborns are much narrower than in adults. Therefore, they need to be cleaned more often. Since there is no possibility for a baby to blow his nose, he must use unconditioned reflexes. So a newborn can sneeze without stopping until his nose gets rid of irritants.
7. They fall asleep easily
Babies have the power to sleep anywhere and at anytime. Many parents think that when a newborn is asleep, they should tiptoe and talk in the quietest whisper. But the fact is that infants can sleep while they are sitting up, surrounded by loud music or screaming siblings.
8. They have a natural accent
Scientists have found out that babies cry with a national accent. They get it in the womb when they hear their mother’s voice.
9. Newborns know how to crawl
Surprisingly, a newborn baby is fully capable of crawling to his mother’s breast. Although for this, you must put him on his mother’s stomach first. According to scientists, infants are attracted to the smell of milk because it lures them.
10. Babies are very flexible
The skeleton of a baby has about 300 bones. With age, many of them grow and coalesce into a single whole. But before the bones are connected, the body of a newborn is extremely flexible. This natural feature is needed for the baby to pass through the birth canal.
