What's On Your Baby's Mind?

Actually, this is one of the most common question a mom asks as she stares into her baby's big eyes! "What the heck is he thinking about?" Did you know that your baby's brain is working harder than you ever imagined?
According to a recent study, it discovered that babies and toddlers know more, learn more and experience even more than adults!

Here are some fascinating facts according to Gopnik, a Ph.D and author of "The Philosophical Baby."

Baby's got your number early on. New studies show that babies minds start to figure out how other people's mind work by 7 months. So when your baby see you reach an object, he gets that you want to grab it.

Your toddler knows there isn't really a polar bear living in her pocket. 70% of kids have imaginary playmates...their way of making sense of the world. Starting at 3-4 years old, kids understand that their pretend playmates aren't real.

Children need answers like plants need water. If your child constantly asks "why, why, why?" she's not trying to annoy you. Kids are driven to find out as much as they can about the world. So, be patient, give answers and brace yourself for that time when you'll be aching for your teen to seek you out!
