Children grow up really fast. In one moment there is nothing more than a few cells and almost immediately vital organs are being built. There are only forty weeks from conception to independent life. Not too long after that they begin forming personalities and even making their own decisions. You probably already know a few facts about babies, like that they cannot change their own diapers and that they don’t yet know how to speak and that it takes them a while to figure out how to move on their own. Here are some facts about babies and childhood development that you might not know.
Babies are sensitive to light before they are born. Your eyes are incredibly complicated devices. You would be surprised by just how much coordination is needed for your eyes to work properly. Babies usually have working eyes by the end of the first trimester or very beginning of the second trimester. Even as early as six months after conception your baby will show signs of light sensitivity. A great piece of eye trivia: your baby’s eyes might change color a few months after she is born-Caucasian babies are born with blue eyes and it takes a few months for the eyes to change to their permanent color. Caucasian babies do not usually keep their “original” eye color (blue). So do what you can not to let your heart get set on having a blue eyed child. Your baby’s eyes will probably change color!
The vocal range of babies is very impressive; even if it does take them a while to use those vocal cords to make words that adults can understand. This is because the larynx (or voice box) is still developing after babies are born. The flexibility of a new voice box is what makes the baby’s range better than an adult’s range. Babies quickly start to assign the sounds they make to the things that they want or need. This is what teaches a mother to identify what it is her baby needs or wants simply by listening to the sounds he is making. Babies first words usually come from the front of the mouth and are often accidental consonants broken up by vowels. This is why “dada” is usually said before “mama”–because “mama” is harder for a baby to learn to say, but “dada” usually happens almost by accident!
Did you know that when babies grow tails? That is no lie! As your baby’s cells divide, the major organs (heart, lungs, brain) begin to form and so does a tail!
The tail will begin to disappear as the rest of the baby’s body takes shape as it grows inside the mother’s womb. The process is sort of like the way a tadpole’s tail gets swallowed up by the body of the frog. Unfortunately, not everyone’s body will absorb the tail completely and some babies are born with short tails still sticking out. Surgical removal and waiting for it to be grown into are the two options that are available to parents whose babies are born with intact tails. Thankfully, the tail has no bearing on the rest of the child’s health and can be removed without worry.
The fact is that most knowledge about childhood development is not widely known. Early childhood development is amazing. Learning what is going on with your baby as he grows up will make the process even more rewarding.
