When babies see

its really special how many babies are born last months…
and talking abt babies..we wondered in what stage a baby can see  dark/light ….colours….

A baby begins to see during the first few months of life as the eyes and visual system mature. A newborn has poor vision and is unable to focus on objects and can only see very big shapes and shadows. Their vision measures worse than 20/400, the biggest letter on an eye chart. By 3 months of age, objects the size of faces can be discerned by the baby’s eyes. A one year old can see shapes the size of large newspaper print. Children do not attain 20/20 vision until approximately 4 years of age.

Babies can not fixate or track objects in their first 2 or 3 months of life due to their immature visual system. However, your baby should be able to fixate and track objects by 4 months of age. An infant’s visual system is also unable to keep their eyes straight early in life. Most infants’ eyes tend to drift outward. The eyes straighten as vision develops and infants begin to use their eyes together by 4 months.

    Hi DR Swetti san,
    I think I agree with you until I read your entry..first new born baby are just looked around that obviously a baby can’t see….
    After 3 month the baby’s noticed mother face? I think I can remember when I feeding my baby..he kept looking my face..
    it was a long time ago Sweeti san! Now they are grown but still my little baby to me ha ha Oh! I felt good today that I had finished my dental …it was took it nearly a month…By the way how are they managing? any progressing? some a miracle it happening?
    I still can believed in the two people being a sick in the one family that it’s not fair it that at all.
    It must be hard on your sister’s too and you and your hubby. I’m going away but I will thinking about your family in my heart.
    I ‘ll keep prayers Sweeti san!
    You were worked hard these days…Please take care my friend, Big Hugs. 10-30pm

Anyway, I hope all is good and well! today my parents messaged me via handphone..and they have reached a mountain area in Thailand..cold they say and yesterday they went to some interior village, accessible by elephants! haha… Well, at least I know they are well, and doing good work for the Lord. 🙂

  11. Ruma says:

    Yes, Sweeti…being born as a normal human being is such a miracle. When a baby is born, it is just one of the many ways to show us that God truly exists. I wonder why so many people are selective when it comes to having a boy over a girl. This phenomena is especially true in our country, where the birth of a boy is considered more beneficial to the family than a girl, due to age old prejudices and beliefs. Nice to know that your family members are keeping up a brave front, and there is an improvement, although it is slight. Bye for now, and do drop in.Love, Ruma.

  16. Prithvi says:

    yes sweety,me on orkut…add me—>>http://www.orkut.com/Home.aspx?xid=2163233738779652013    🙂 ciao there !

  17. sonia says:

    Hi Sweeti,how are you?
     Yes,today thats what it will be Sweeti :D!! These guys are already at school (my daughter goes to the same school) and having a "Boarder’s Breakfast’…must be freaking out totally,reliving the good ol’ days!! Quite a wild bunch they were in their school time,maybe thats why they have gone bananas now :D!!
    I think you are a nurse by profession,rem reading it somewhere? Do you work in the kids? Its a very noble and selfless profession ,i feel!!
    God does have a plan,He does not discriminate BUT each one of us is born for a specific purpose,we do our part and then go with nothing but our deeds…both good and bad!! Thats life,i guess!!
    Hope all remains grt with you!
    Tc and have a nice day!
