Think of a baby as one of those old school TVs – ok bear with me here. You turn it one and it can only see black and white perhaps shades of gray. But as technology develops, as your baby grows, more colors start coming into the mix. When born
your baby will only be able to see black and white.
But gradually, your baby’s photoreceptors will begin to develop and then, after a matter of months, they will begin to see shades of different colors. Red will be the first color your baby sees. By 2 months, your baby will be able to see a lot more colors, can differentiate colors, have more focus. By 5 months, your baby will be able to see the full spectrum of colors.
