Whilst ‘surfing the net’ today, I came across two very interesting facts:
1. Scientists in Norway videoed babies who were delivered onto their mother’s tummies, and found to their astonishment that if left to their own devices, the babies used their limbs in a slow but coordinated way to crawl up and reach the breast where they then latched on and fed unaided.
2. Psychologists in America found that even newborn babies have an elementary grasp of maths and physics. They can tell the difference between one, two, three and more objects, and can also add up and take away. They may not have an abstract concept of numbers, but your baby knows how many apples should remain if, for example, one is taken away, and he will express surprise if it is wrong.
Newborn babies never cease to amaze, and further to reading the above we have a gorgeous selection of newborn baby hampers, delivered UK wide.
