For most of us, babies are little bundles of joy that eat, sleep, and poop; of course, with the occasional adorable chuckle and some horrendous crying. But if you think babies are just that, then we come with some news for you, they’re much, much more.
We promise you one thing, this AptParenting post is going to change (if not completely) your perception about babies. Here are some facts, albeit some weird ones, about babies that you never knew.
Babies have around 10,000 taste buds present on the tongue, sides, roof, and back of the mouth. This number dwindles down to around 2,000 taste buds in adults. Infants cannot decipher the taste of salt until they’re almost four months old.
Most newborns tend to urinate once in twenty minutes, this retention increases to an hour by the age of six months. Almost 80% of newborns have some sort of a birthmark; in a way, making abnormality normal. The most common birthmarks are “stork bites” and “port wine stains”.
Babies, at birth, do not have a bony kneecap. They usually have a cartilaginous structure in its place, the development of the bony cartilage does not begin before six months.
