You may not know the baby "vision" (Part 1)

Babies don't see the colorful world right from birth. Newborns see the world as a blur of black and white, and by about seven months their vision is largely developed. Human pups also see us more and more clearly in front of their eyes. An interesting phenomenon is that babies see clearly what their father looks like later than their mother.

Infant vision development process

(A) 0-1 month

(1) General characteristics: focus range 20~38cm; eyes wandering occasionally to eyes; most like to look at human faces. Color vision development: prefers black and white or contrasting patterns. Newborns see a blurred world. Lacking the ability to gaze at birth, they are very sensitive to bright light and will reduce the amount of light entering their eyes by contracting their pupils; at 2 weeks of age, their pupils begin to grow larger and they can detect an abundance of light and shadows. After the full moon, they can feel the movement of the hand in front of them.

(2) You can do the sight-chasing game with the child to take the black and white card in the baby's line of sight slowly move up and down, left and right, exercise the baby's ability to focus both eyes, stimulate visual awareness.

(B) 2-3 months

(1) general characteristics: careful observation of faces; tracking moving objects; can identify familiar objects and people within a certain distance; begin to coordinate hand-eye movements. Color vision development: At 3 months, they begin to distinguish different colors and shapes, especially red; at 3 months, they can see at a distance of up to several meters; they can track objects and reach for them, which helps hand-eye coordination.

(2) You can use brightly colored toys or colorful bedbells that can be turned to continue to exercise your baby's ability to follow the eyes.
