How baby learn to identify the people around him?
Newborn usually learns to identify something from the image rather than the characteristics of the objects before 3 years old. They consider the objects as one image to remember.
Newborn can remember the image of his mom after 3-4 months old, for his mom or the most intimate people often appear in front of him. These faces will be an image on the newborn’s brain. This is the initial memory. Therefore, he will show his interest on the women who is as the same image as his mom. But he will cry if the image is relatively different from his mom’s shape. For instance, one big man appears in front of him.
