Physical Friday: Amazing Facts about Babies

Click here for the Bean Bag Giveaway!

Here is a list of 7 Things You Didn't Know About Your Baby that I read in Parents magazine December 2008. This list comes from the new book Amazing Baby by Desmond Morris.
  1. During the nine months between conception and birth, a baby's weight increases 3,000 million times.
  2. Between birth and age 2, an infant will quadruple in size.
  3. At birth, a baby's brain is 1- percent of her total body weight (an adult's is 2 percent).
  4. Within 45 hours of birth, a newborn knows her own mother by smell. (And a blindfolded mom can identify her own child from a host of other babies by scent alone.)
  5. At birth, babies have the ability to swim.
  6. Human babies are the only primates to smile at their parents.
  7. A newborn has feet that are one third of their adult length. By age one, they are nearly half of their adult size.
