I learned the other day that the word "infant" derives from Latin and means "not speaking" or "unable to speak". I liked that.

More babyfacts:

  • babies lose weight after birth, usually regaining their original birthweight within a week or two
  • babies sleep about 18 hours each day
  • babies have four times as much REM sleep as adults
  • babies are born without kneecaps
  • babies are born with 300 bones, but by adulthood will have only 206
  • a week-old baby consumes about 20% of its bodyweight in milk every day!

And now some babyphotos:
