Your baby can open its eyes inside the uterus. Eyelids cover the eyes and are fused or connected around 11 to 12 weeks. They remain fused until about 27 to 28 weeks, when they open.
By 21 weeks, the baby's digestive system has developed enough to allow the baby to swallow amniotic fluid.
There is evidence that by the third trimester the baby responds to sounds it hears. Researchers have noted the baby's heart-rate increases in response to tones it hears through the mother's abdomen.
In addition to turning over and moving their hands and feet, babies do open and close their mouths in the womb. The babies may also suck its thumb or finger.

When there's a healthy attachment 
     between baby and parent, the baby comes to believe that the world is a safe place. 

This is the beginning of the establishment of trust.
