Within weeks of their birth they understand the emotion happy and sad just be seeing the faces of people. Just like you care about your baby, your baby also cares about you.

2. They are good in Maths-

Yes, the subject many of us hate. New born babies are pro in maths. They have a good grasp in the concept subtraction. In a research study performed at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev a 6-9 months old baby were made to watch a puppet show, first with two puppets and then later one puppet was taken back. Then again, this same incident was repeated, which made the babies to realise the difference between 2 puppets and 1 puppet.

4. They Communicate with their hands-

Your babies communicate with you via their hands. If you are thinking, that you have to wait till your baby starts speaking to communicate, you are wrong. Your baby has already started the communicating with their hands. Babies learn sign languages way before they learn to speak. With the help of sign language, your baby can communicate to you what they see and what they hear. Your little encouragement can help to boost their IQ, and self-confidence.

5. Babies can speak two languages-

If you want your child to learn a new language, make sure 30% of time that language is spoken in your house. Infant possesses great ability to learn a second language. Being multi lingual helps in flexible thinking, enhancing memory and also boosting child’s concentration.

6. They can recognize your face-

A 6-months old baby, is more gifted to differentiate between faces than the adults. You might be surprised how much your little one is dependent on you for small things. But I feel, this ability of babies starts when they reach 9 months in their mother’s womb.

7. Babies react to Music-
