Guess you always wondered what you remember and what babies do not remember. We tell you the process of developing the memory of the smallest. Believe it or not they have always had memory, and remember much of your gestures; here we leave the process in stages:
From 0 to 6 months
The memory of your newborn baby begins to develop since it is in the belly. Nerve cells in memory are formed in the third trimester of pregnancy. You can start to talk to him and sing before he is born!
Newborn baby memory has little awareness of space and time. They can recognize the voice of the closest ones, but they cannot tell when it was the first time they heard it.
They begin to recognize people after two months. But they must be people you see regularly, because their memory is still limited. The same happens with the objects that surround him, he will begin to remember them but they must remain fixed.
From the four months begin to recognize his name. He will pay attention when called. They also learn to recognize the people closest and those who are not. It is common for them to cry when they see someone they do not know.
From 6 to 12 months
An important change between these months is that boys develop memories of bedtime. You can remember what happened the night before and you know what comes next.
From nine months on, newborn baby begin to understand the concept of “permanence of things”. This means that when you leave the room they know that you are not leaving forever and that you did not disappear.
Tip: When your Newborn baby memory is in this stage, the ideal is that when you leave a room you will continue talking. It is a way to not be scared and learn to remember.
By ten months babies learn to recognize people, even if they do not see them for several days. They can also distinguish who they like and who do not. You will feel more caring for the family and for the people you know.
12 to 18 months
When Newborn babies begin to talk, around 12 months, they begin to associate words with their memories. For example, when you name a person you know, he will immediately picture his face.
If your Newborn baby memory is determined to do something that should not and you told him several times it is not because he wants to disobey you, but his memory is not as developed as yours and you may not remember that you told him.
As you grow older you will be able to pay attention for longer times, such as listening to a story or watching a movie. Patience! You will begin to distinguish your favorite things and chances are you have to watch the same movie over and over again.
Tip: Memory feeding is very important. Your baby should receive all the necessary vitamins. These are very important for the development of long-term memory in the first 18 months.
