A 3-day-old newborn left his mother shocked after she started lifting her head and crawling in front of her.
Samantha Elizabeth took to TikTok and shared a video of her baby girl crawling and lifting her head in her incubator.
“POV: your daughter is 3 days old and is lifting her head and crawling and talking,” she wrote alongside the video.
According to Baby Center, it usually takes three to six months for a baby to develop their neck muscles and support their own head.
A report written by health advisor Joanne Lewsley read: “Your baby’s neck muscles are fairly weak when they’re born. If you pull them up gently by their hands into a sitting position their head will flop back because their neck muscles can’t support it.
“For the first few months, they’ll rely on you using your hands to support their head and neck when you hold them.”
But for a 3-day-old newborn, that’s impressive super powers!
Samantha’s video has been viewed more than 50 million times, with people flocking to the comments section to express their disbelief.
“What type of baby is that?” one jokingly asked.
“She gonna drive you home back from hospital,” another said.
“Babies born after 2020 are definitely built different,” a third commented.
“When I see babies doing this it makes me think they are evolving because they know they gotta get moving faster,” someone else added.
In other videos, the proud mother shared the things her newborn was already doing, including rolling around, smiling a lot, and even trying to stand up.
One person commented: “She’s trying to get up to ask you about your car insurance.”
