why do babies like staring at the ceiling fan?

It gets me too though and makes me sleepy. What exactly makes it so memorizing?

  • It can be soothing. Its movement and may see other things too! The wee Grandbabies always stare in corners where we see nothing.. Who knows what they see,. But it can be calming to watch a fan.. As long as they're content and happy. its a good thing. Enjoy all the happy times making good memories!

  • Lol, my 10 months old daughter was watching the ceiling fan the other day and she started dancing to it.
    My son was into them when he was a baby too. I had forgotten about it until Ruby was memorized by it.
    So funny.

  • My daughter did that starting from the moment we brought her home - my mom kept saying that their must have been a fan in my uterus...
