Babies don't know language, so how do they think?


When you think, you think in a language, so how does a baby think?

Answer: They don’t think in language, but in sensations. They know that if they feel hunger, that they are hungry and that food will take that away. Without language, all they can do it cry until they get that food. They have a limited palette of sensations which they think about.
