For the first few weeks, these abilities pretty much restrict your baby’s daily activities to eating, looking, sleeping, peeing, and pooping.

Yet, as limited as your baby’s brain is, it has one more truly surprising talent…the ability to learn!

Babies’ Innate Ability to Learn

Our little ones begin to recognise the voices and music they hear in the womb. And after birth, babies quickly learn to distinguish the scent of their mum’s milk from another mum’s. They also learn to coo and squirm the moment they see Dad’s smiling face…even before his tickling fingers start poking them.

The way babies learn—sifting through and filing away each day’s huge silo full of new experiences—is probably why they have five times more REM sleep than we do.

Since babies are such great learners, you would think that they should be able to learn to sleep better. In fact, they can! Teaching your baby good sleep cues is key to helping her snooze better!
