      I would say that the networks in a babies brain are very changable, so nothing stays around for very long unless it is very important, such as how to get food in your mouth. Also you may not be able to remember it for the same reason that you can’t rememebr what you had for lunch 3 years ago, your brain deliberately forgets stuff that is not important. I am not sure of the definate reason.
