Newborns are not, as was long believed, color-blind. By measuring a baby’s brain waves and eye movements, researchers have determined that the typical newborn can tell the difference between red and green. Within about four months, babies are able to distinguish all colors. When you expose your baby to everyday sights and interesting things to focus on and track, you are helping create permanent neural connections in her brain that are essential for normal vision.

Research has shown that the secret to infant visual stimulation lies in high-contrast colors. The development of a newborn’s eyes – the structures of the retina that perceive color – haven’t matured enough to perceive the values and intensities of red, blue, pink, yellow, purple and green. Black and white are the easiest for babies to perceive and interest in these starkly contrasting colors will pave the way for your baby’s brain development.

Babies seem to like looking at human faces more than anything else though. Newborns can see faces best at about 8-14 inches away which is the approximate distance that the mother holds the infant for feeding. From this range, your face is all the baby sees and they are free to just concentrate and study the features of the face. Also at birth, the retina lacks the ability to distinguish details and textures. “When your newborn looks at your hair, she doesn’t get a sense of the individual hairs, but just a sort of generalized, uniform color,” says Charles Gilbert. For that reason, “infants tend to seek out things with a lot of contrast, which are easier to see and more interesting to them,” adds Claire B. Kopp, Ph.D., adjunct professor of psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles, and author of Baby Steps. When a newborn looks at your face, for instance, they ignore your nose and mouth, which are subtly shaded and blend into the rest of your face. Instead, they are more likely to stare at the contrast between the dark of your pupils and the whites of your eyes.
