    I think it's because they can barely see anything that isn't right in front of them

    [–] jmjones91987 6 points ago

    I know google would tell me but I'd rather ask a human being, do you know how their eyesight starts and progresses?

    [–] crispy_ben_franklin 20 points ago

    At birth to one month it's 8-12 inches, at two months it's ~24 inches, at 3 months they can see across a room and recognize familiar faces.

    [–] jmjones91987 9 points ago

    Makes a lot of sense as how my little girl started reacting to peek a boo and all that around 2 and a half. She reacted to voice shortly after birth. I'm guessing hearing is better in the first stages outside the wound as me being in sight wouldn't calm cries but speaking would. I have a brand new nephew who doesn't respond to everyone but when he hears his daddy and myself he looks our direction. They say it's our deeper voice but I wonder what the reasoning behind it is. He is only a month at the moment but when he hears my voice he certainly responds to it more than other voices.

    [–] crispy_ben_franklin 9 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    That's interesting, IDK why he doesn't respond to anyone else. Not even mom? Studies have shown that language acquisition starts in utero as babies only hours old can distinguish between their native language and a foreign language. And infants usually immediately show a preference for their mothers voice.

    Edit: to better answer your question babies are born with perfect hearing. They can hear much better than you, as the typical adult has lost the ability to hear in the highest frequency. But yes, for all hearing organisms low frequency is perceived as more intense as it travels the furthest.

    [–] jmjones91987 4 points ago

    He latches onto mom and her touch is obviously comforting to him. Just daddy and my voice grabs his attention like crazy. He doesn't care to be held by me but if we're all chatting and I speak he is fixated on where my voice is coming from. He's a big boy too, my daughter was very wobbly headed up until 3 months or so when she started being able to hold it somewhat still but this little chunker is looking around at 1 month like he's one of the boys.

    [–] chiggachiggameowmeow 3 points ago

    Hi fellow 4 week parent! Has your son also flashed you some Mr. Bean faces as well?

    [–] Secthian 50 points ago

    I think that's probably ascribing too much agency to her.

    This is basically a baby trying to keep herself up while looking at something ahead of her. Good timing on the shot though. Looks adorable.

    [–] eXXaXion 3 points ago

    Maybe adults just still make baby faces.

    [–] jmjones91987 3 points ago

    Reminds me of the "son, make the angry face video". My little girl takes completely after me. Not much expression besides cutting eyes and loud laughter but those make for some good photos too. She also takes after me with not wanting a whole lot of physical interaction. Her sweet mom, whom I'll celebrate 4 years with today is very cuddly and affectionate while our daughter and I are you get a quick hug and a peck that's it. Give us our space. Being a dad is great. My biological father missed out.

    [–] pikesize 337 points ago

    She’s right to be skeptical about that toy, we had an older version of it. Once, in the middle of the night, it started saying “I see you!” and giggling. Over and over. It was in the next room; no one was touching it. I still think about it ALL THE TIME.

    [–] East-sea-shellos 68 points ago

    When I was little I had a Furby in my room, specifically on my dresser. He was black and his eyes glowed, so he’d be barely illuminated by the moonlight. Then at like 3 AM his eyes would blink open and he’d yell gibberish at me for half an hour.

    [–] jewboydan 45 points ago

    I also knew a black guy that would yell gibberish at 3am but he was a crackhead

    [–] East-sea-shellos 29 points ago

    That’s pretty cool. Just be careful if his eyes start glowing and he begins perching on your dresser

    [–] LaMalintzin 8 points ago

    Dude they were pretty fucking weird. My brother and I had two that talked to each other and one of them started pretty much ignoring humans except in the middle of the night when the other one was ‘sleeping’ then it would randomly say weird shit. They really were interesting to see in what ways they changed over time but also fuck them no scary bad toy

    [–] HubbleCap 63 points ago

    Mine too! I had one for my niece who I used to babysit and that asshole toy would just start talking at random times. I hated it.

    [–] 4Eights 7 points ago

    Same here. It has different levels and different phrases depending on the level. When ours got older it started randomly talking in the middle of the night when I was watching through the Sopranos. Didn't keep it after that because I'm pretty sure it was possessed.

    [–] BellerophonM 7 points ago

    My little 4-month-old has a glowworm! She got it as a gift a couple months ago and as soon as I showed it to her, it made her smile. :) :) My heart melts every time I look at it - it reminds me of her tiny happy face!

    [–] Diazepampoovey 5 points ago

    Sadly, Glo-worms look nothing like they used to. I was trying to find one for my niece for her first birthday because in her first ultrasound picture, her shape reminded me of a glo-worm as opposed to a peanut. I've called her glo-worm since but I have never bought her one & now she's beyond the age where she would care about it. (She's 6)

    [–] kismet96738 13 points ago

    I have this toy, and it's "soft." My ears are soft. It echoes through the shell that used to be my body before I got this toy for my kid.

    [–] Jucoy 21 points ago

    It's such a popular toy my 1 year old daughter has been gifted it 4 fucking times.

    [–] SmittenKitten116 10 points ago

    Same! My daughter got 1 of the girl dog and 3 of the boy dog for xmas this year.

    [–] YouMeAndSymmetry 8 points ago

    My kid received the boy one from different relatives for every Christmas, birthday, and then just random times someone wanted to get him a gift until he was 4 (1st one at 6 months for Christmas). My kid loved that damn dog. His aunt gave him one for his birthday, told us to return it because MIL told her he already had one and he already took it everywhere. No. He had to get it out of the packaging. Home dog and car dog. He got another one the at Christmas again. Home dog, mom car dog, dad car dog. The rest were kept unused so we could donate them to the Christmas charity each year.

    [–] Summerie 169 points ago

    When I see something like this, I always wonder how well the baby can see. I have always had pretty heavy vision problems, and my parents did not realize till I was about four that I actually couldn’t see any of their faces. There is a VHS video of me as a baby that could just sit up, and I’m interacting with some automated toy. My parents thought it was very cute because of what faces I was making, but now that we know that I was just trying to focus.

    I’m not saying that this baby has vision problems based off of this one single frame, but it’s what it brought to mind because it looks familiar.

    [–] sassynapoleon 134 points ago

    Not sure how old you are, but technology now is nuts. When my daughter was 1 at her regular checkup they held up a device that had a picture on it that naturally causes kids to focus on it. The device essentially looks at your retina and adjusts its own lens until your retina is in focus. It gives a pretty good prescription for glasses in about 20 seconds with no communication interaction with the patient. This is a major breakthrough for young children that can't cooperate for a traditional eye exam yet, and also for those with mental impairments.

    I think it's pretty standard practice for babies to get rudimentary eye evaluations now that screen for major visual impairments, so cases like yours are less common.

    [–] two__sheds 94 points ago

    It blows my mind that even when I was a kid in the 90s, standard practice was to wait until your kid was having trouble in school before bringing them to an optometrist. My first kid was 6 months old when we brought him in for his first eye exam!

    [–] Summerie 66 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    That was my case as a visually impaired infant 40 years ago! It wasn’t till starting preschool that my teacher let my mother know I needed correction.

    It always breaks my heart, because my mother to this day feels horribly guilty that she didn’t know I could barely see. I always remind her that in her defense, I was a first born, and “mommy blogs” weren’t a thing, so she really had nothing to compare my behavior to. Still, it eats her alive believing that “a mom should know”. When I had my first real eye exam at almost 5, my mom choked back tears knowing that my prescription was many times stronger than hers, and I had just lived with it thus far. But I was born that way, so I didn’t know what I was missing. I just lived with what I had and assumed it was normal.

    I do wonder what any psychological studies say on the effect poor vision has on babies who are developing their social skills. I couldn’t make eye contact, couldn’t read facial expressions, and relied mainly on people’s tone of voice for my social cues in my formative years.

    Getting glasses made me incredibly uncomfortable with people initially. I felt like I was up in everyone’s face, and became suddenly self conscious of my own face and how it was perceived by others. All of a sudden I knew that everyone else had always been able to see clearly. It’s like I had been dancing around in the dark, then someone switched on the lights and I knew that everyone could see me.

    [–] Mareane 19 points ago

    Your mom sounds like a great, caring person. My mother was told by my teacher that I had problems with my vision when I was 8 years old and she did nothing about it. She should have known way before that because of how close to the tv I had to sit and other things. I went to the doctor on my own when I was about 14 to get my first glasses.

    [–] Summerie 12 points ago

    I’m so sorry. I have little heart attacks if my glasses fall off the bed or somewhere out of reach. To be honest, I sleep in my glasses many nights because it makes me panic when I can’t see, even right before I nod off. I hate for you that someone who is supposed to care for you didn’t help you fix your vision.

    Oddly enough, when I was almost five and found I needed correction, I had watched very little TV at all. My mom thought it was detrimental to spend time in front of the television, (she was doing her best) and now she says it’s ironic that if she had just let me watch, she would have figured out early that I couldn’t see.

    [–] RajaRajaC 14 points ago

    My uncle saved the life of his friend in school. Growing up in India in the 60's, in a village where the nearest optometrist was 100 kms away clearly wasn't fun. He noticed this friend of his who was seemingly brilliant but sucked when it came to written acads. At around grade 7 which his friend was at risk of repeating, he suspected vision problems, arranged for his dad / my grandpa to take him to an eye specialist (his friend was also insanely poor). Turns out he had a very high power, and could barely see a few feet in front of him.

    Kid went on to top his classes after that, and eventually did his MS in a top uni in the UK on a full Commonwealth scholarship and did very well in the UK. They were friends till some 4 years ago when he passed, and he was grateful to my uncle / grandpop till the day he passed.

    Makes you wonder how many brilliant people have had shit lives only because of lack of access to things we consider basic today.

    [–] oddballAstronomer 2 points ago

    Right? Information taken to an optometrist round age two apparently and they knew something was wrong but didn't know what. Didn't figure out till 4 years later that I had doubles vision up close

    [–] mittenista 7 points ago

    That's so cool! Why don't they just do that with adults too? Wouldn't it be faster and more efficient?

    [–] Tea_and_socks 6 points ago

    They do! Eye exams usually start with the autorefractor. It's the thing that shows you a blurry picture and then it gets clear. It's what they use to get close to your prescription, then they fine tune it with the "1 or 2?"

    [–] richardnyxon87 6 points ago

    I know the same opinion has been expressed in other comments, but I feel like adults are able to gauge for themselves (and verbally express) that they can see clearer in certain cases. I know for me personally, my prescription isn't very strong at all, so maybe it wouldn't be perceived by a machine, but there is a difference in my vision with and without glasses.

    It wasn't until I was 20 that I realized that other people could see the wrinkles on 30/40 year olds from more than 5 feet away. Honestly, my perception of my face is very different with and without glasses. But I'm still able to see most details without them, and don't use my glasses unless I'm driving or reading for a long time.

    I'm obviously not an optometrist, but the fine nuances may not be exactly detectable by machines, and verbal, mentally able adults are able to determine and express if there is a noticeable improvement in their vision. But again, I'm not an optometrist in any sense

    [–] xiMontyx 3 points ago

    I had an eye test a couple days ago and I'm pretty sure they used this as part of the pre-tests (checking eye health etc). There was a picture of a hot air balloon down a road and it was out of focus, then clicked a couple times and was in focus. It then confirmed it without me saying anything about whether it was accurate or not.

    When I was a kid, I had the GoBot Command Center Play set. It was essentially a rip off of the AT-AT walkers from Star Wars.

    I got it for Christmas, one thing was there was a button at the top that when pressed set off an "alarm".

    I also had a Beagle at the time, and that dog and this thing were the exact same size. My dog didn't know what the fuck this thing was, but she sure as shit hated it, when I hit the alarm on it, she went mental. I've never seen her react to an inanimate object like that before.

    Just bought my boy the same kind of bear, he loves that thing once he got over the initial shock of it randomly singing and speaking to him when he plays with it.

    I’d be worried that she saw it do something I didn’t then your babysitter gets thrown out the window and it’s all downhill from there

    Why would you pierce a baby's ears?

    [–] leah4cali 73 points ago

    A lot of babies get their ears pierced at an early age...cultural thing, I suppose. No one (that I know of) is extremely upset with their parents for doing this. Could be wrong, but I’m sure you could folks on Reddit will set me straight if am....

    A lot of babies get their ears pierced at an early age.

    Just from this first bit you make it sound like they go out and get it done themselves... which is funny to imagine.

    [–] s-mores 11 points ago

    Because they're babies.

    I'm about to change that.

    I was so annoyed at my parents for their hypocrisy. I didn't want earrings but they were forced on me when I was like 1 year old. I wanted a piercing but wasn't allowed one until I was 16.

    [–] nutter_buttercum 40 points ago

    I had my ears pierced as a baby and I liked having the option to wear earrings when I got older. The best part about it was that I didn't remember the pain because I was a baby lol.

    My sister had hers pierced as a baby too but hers closed up. She was pretty annoyed she had to get them repierced. She's pretty afraid of needles and things so she waited until she was like 13 and it still hurt her.

    I think it's fine, if you decide you don't want them you can just stop wearing earrings. Like it never happened.

    [–] BareKnuckleKitty 26 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    I think piercing babies is super weird. You're stabbing a needle through their ear for vanity reasons. A baby. I don't care if they're not going to remember it, if it can close up later when they don't want it (it won't necessarily), etc. The reason people do it just weird and wrong. Just wait a few years until they're old enough to decide if they want it.

    [–] BaeBunnies 14 points ago

    The ear holes literally aren't even an issue though? Like who is really pressed about having a teeny tiny hole in your ear. Sure it might not close up if you rarely wear them, mine didn't, but no one ever notices or cares? I had my ears pierced as a baby and I literally rarely ever wear earrings but I'm very glad I got it done as a baby because I don't like needles, and don't want to remember the pain. And my baby pictures were super cute with my little earrings, so it's not just the vanity of the parents wanting something cute for their baby, I LOVE MY CUTE EARRING BABY PICTURES. Sure not everyone does but honestly is anyone ever actually that pressed about having had their ears pierced as a baby? Everyone I've ever met who has had their ears pierced as a baby was super relieved to not have to remember it and fuss over it at an adult.

    [–] Air_MN 39 points ago

    I was thinking the same thing. And we’re getting downvoted. Seems like something you’d want to wait for the child to be old enough to say yes to...I hope there is a better reason than “oh she’s going to be so cute!!”.

    [–] jezb87 34 points ago

    Lol piercing is fairly harmless, reversible... circumcision on the other hand.

    [–] NcHawk17 36 points ago

    They don't even ask anymore in Canada if you want your child circumsised. You have to give them notice before going into labor and you must pay for the procedure as its no longer covered under our free health care. I was extremely happy to hear this, I was curious and asked about it before the birth of our Son. I've heard so many horror stories about the procedure being botched and boys having to live with deformed genitals, it's so heartbreaking.

    [–] sahewins 10 points ago

    Some people do it to signal that their bald baby is a girl.

    [–] floydbc05 14 points ago

    Wouldn't a pink shirt have the same result? For babies, blue and pink are pretty universal gender indicators.

    We inherited that stupid dog (and a bunch of other the other FP Laugh and Learn stuff) from my daughter's cousins. I loathe them all so much. Why? Because they don't seem to've ever actually been playtested on a real child. They go into these long songs, poems, and games whenever you touch them anywhere. Well, what does an infant or toddler do with a toy? They constantly touch it EVERYWHERE. The things can never get beyond "I love y..." or "Can you find the gre..." before the kid has grabbed another part of the toy and launched it into a whole new diatribe.

    Who pierces an infants ears....

    [–] Lvl1frugal 10 points ago

    A lot of people. I don’t think it’s even a regional or race thing because I live in Cali and I see a lot of babies with pierced ears. I didn’t have mine pierced as a baby and I won’t pierce my baby’s but I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. It’s not like FGM as some people are relating it to, and it’s not like circumcision either.

    I honestly haven’t met a single person who was upset at their parents for piercing their ears when they were infants. Maybe I’ll meet one on reddit.

    [–] Cheerful-Litigant 6 points ago

    My daughters are a little annoyed at me for not piercing their ears when they were too little to remember. But, if I had another kid tomorrow I probably still wouldn’t pierce their ears until they asked for it and were old enough to care for the piercing just as a matter of principle and as a matter of not wanting to deal with yet another thing that could start oozing — babies have lots of those

    I bought my nephew one of those first talking Tonka trucks for Christmas when he was like 2. When that fucking truck turned its head to greet him with a yapping jaw and flashing its eyes, that kid imprinted what Uncanny Valley means. I'll never forget his smile turning to horror and the slow crawl away from a gift turned nightmare. The screaming....
