FUN FACTS ABOUT BABIES:

  1. It is not possible for a baby to taste salt until it is four months old. In some cases, the delay may be caused by the development of the kidneys, which begin processing sodium around that age when the kidneys start to develop.

  2. The inner ear is a sensory organ in the body that develops completely before birth. It reaches its adult size in the middle of pregnancy. Baby Ear Pulling: Causes and When You Should Worry

  3. At the time of birth, babies do not have kneecaps. It takes up to six months for the kneecaps to develop completely.

  4. As adults, we have 206 bones, whereas as babies, we have 300 bones. As they grow, their bones fuse together, resulting in fewer bones as they become adults.                                    

  5. When a newborn is born, he or she typically urinates about every 20 minutes and then approximately every hour at 6 months of age.

  6. It is estimated that babies have about 30,000 taste buds. Some are on the tongue while others are on the tongue's sides, back, and roof. Adults have about 10,000 taste buds.  

  7. Studies have shown that cesarean babies are more likely to have breathing difficulties due to missing out on crucial hormonal and physiological changes during labor.

  8. Baby heads are proportionally huge, accounting for one-quarter of the total body length, as opposed to only one-eighth of the whole body length of an adult.

  9. Babies respond positively to the fragrance of their mothers' breasts and ignore breast pads used by others. It is even more impressive that a blindfolded woman can identify her own baby from a multitude of other babies by smell alone.
