    This is how newborn babies see the world

    The newborn babies see the world in three colors – black, white and grey.

    7Why babies wake up and cry at night when they are not even hungry?

    It is being said that if a baby cries in the night then he might not want to have any sibling. The founder of this theory, David Haig states that this ability was developed during evolution as it will be easy for a kid if he doesn’t have a sibling because then he will get the full attention of his mother.
    Haig also says that crying of the baby in the night may also depend upon the genes passed on to the kid by the mother or the father. If mother’s genes are passed on to the kid, he won’t cry in the night as it will be interested in having a sibling while the father’s genes will make sure that there is no pregnancy as men can’t be sure of the fact that the next kid will also be his kid.
