Seeing the Light
When learning starts

Baby’s eyes,formed in the first trimester, are sealed shut until about the seventh month. After they open, the fetus is able to see, but there’s little or no light to see anything by. Doctors have reported,that if you shine a very bright light up inside the uterus, the fetus will turn away from it.Ultrasound has also revealed that fetuses gradually open and close their eyes more and more as they near delivery, as if practicing for blinking and seeing in the outside world.
