Newborns can not see. Of course they can see. Babies love to look at faces. Newborns show more interest in looking at pictures of two triangles and a circle arranged like two eyes and a mouth than at the same shapes jumbled up in any other pattern. They can only focus up close. Anything further away is just a blur to them.

Newborns can not hear. Babies begin listening from inside the womb a few months before they are born. A mother’s voice resonates straight through to her baby, but the baby’s father’s voice can be heard through her belly, too.

Babies do not remember anything before birth. It is not clear what or how much babies recall, but we know this: If you read the same nursery rhyme over and over during the last months of pregnancy, your newborn will recognize it and distinguish it from ones she has never heard.
