Many people say that the baby’s eyes are very pure and can see things that ordinary people can’t see. Of course, there is no scientific basis for this statement, but we can be sure that babies have many “super abilities” like “pure eyes” that ordinary people don’t have. Today, Xiaobian lists five super abilities that only babies have, which gradually disappear with age.
1. Diving reflex
Remember what environment we lived in before we were born? Amniotic fluid, yes, we lived in amniotic fluid when we were still in our mother’s womb. Babies born less than six months old often have such ability: if you put them in the water, they will instinctively hold their breath and make a swimming posture. This is the instinct we used to live in amniotic fluid, known as the “diving reaction.”.
2. Learning in a dream
Although babies sleep almost every day, science says that when babies grow up to 3 years old, there will be about 1000 trillion connections in their brains, twice as many as adults. Therefore, scientists speculate that babies are also learning in their sleep.
Then the scientists did an experiment in which they breathed into their eyes every time they played a musical sound, and repeated this behavior 200 times. They found that babies would close their eyes even when they heard the music again during sleep.
3. Babies are stronger than adults
Why are babies stronger than adults? In fact, it’s better to say that babies don’t cry like adults because their lacrimal ducts are closed, they can’t shed tears, and they can only shout or groan when they vent their emotions.
4. It’s super easy for a baby to fall asleep
In order not to wake up the baby after sleeping, we usually instinctively reduce the noise, but in fact, the baby can easily fall asleep, even if the music or upstairs decoration are difficult to wake up the sleeping baby.
Perhaps “forgetfulness” can’t be classified as a super ability, but it’s really a unique ability of infants. There’s even a saying that infants and fish have only seven seconds of memory. Although this statement is somewhat exaggerated, it is true that babies forget bad things very quickly, and they yearn for happy things more. As I grow older, although I still yearn for happiness as before, it’s hard to forget those unhappy memories.
