    Babies are far more aware and observant then people realise. All the time they are learning about the world around them, taking in new experiences and sensations, all of which contribute to the growth of their brain's functions.

    A normal baby will always be watching, looking at movement, listening to sound, feeling through their hands, feet and skin.
