7 Signs Your Baby Is A Genius

Although most new parents feel that their baby is gifted, you need to understand that a genius child is a very rare occurrence. However, if you’re fortunate and your baby is one of those individuals with extraordinary skills and unimaginable intelligence, he will begin to show some signs early in life, especially infancy.

It will be best if you try to identify these signs early and develop your child’s skills. But you need to understand that every child is different and develops talents and skills in his own time. You don’t need to pressurize your child just because you’ve noticed some signs. Here are 7 signs indicating your baby is a genius.

1. Meets Milestones Early

There are certain milestones (starting to walk, talk, read etc.) parents set for their child. If your baby starts meeting these milestones early, he might be gifted. You should look for your baby to meet some developmental milestones well ahead of his peers.

This may include some small muscle skills like grasping or smiling and large muscle skills like walking or crawling. A genius child also starts speaking earlier in life. He will speak more complexly than his peers.

2. A Keen Interest in Language

A gifted child always has a keen interest in language. He will pay a lot of attention to speech earlier in life. Moreover, he will also start speaking earlier. Genius babies show an interest in books. When your child turns 6 months, he will be able to remain in one place and pay attention to stories.

When he turns 14 months, he’ll be speaking two-word sentences without any problems. By the time he turns 18 months, he’ll understand spoken directions.

3. Sharp Memory

Gifted babies have a tendency to amaze their parents at an early age. Most of this amazement is caused by an exceptional memory and connections they make. For instance, a genius baby may have a special ability to remember where he left his favorite toy.

Similarly, he may be able to remember that his cereal comes out of the refrigerator. Such a gifted child will make connections and ask for his cereal when he sees a refrigerator elsewhere. Gifted babies have a better understanding of their surroundings and objects that come in contact with them. They carry this habit till the end of their life.
