A new mom was shocked when her three-day-old baby started lifting her head and making attempts to crawl.
Little Nyilah Daise Tzabari was resting on her stomach in the hospital cot when Samantha Mitchell of White Oak, Pennsylvania, and her own mother photographed the miraculous moment.
The infant moves and makes noises, and she raises her head and looks around for a few seconds.
Mitchell’s mother, Nyilah Daise’s grandma, can be heard in the background of the film exclaiming in amazement at her granddaughter’s courage.
According to Healthline, most babies begin to creep or crawl between the ages of six and nine months, and they don’t stay in this stage for very long before they begin to walk.
Even yet, Nyilah Daise was much ahead of her time, as evidenced by the fact that she began to turn over from her belly to her back at the ripe old age of 18 days.
She could roll over from her back to her stomach when she was two months old.
“Sometimes I laugh and just think I wish she could be a baby,” Mitchell shared of her advanced newborn.
At three months old, Nyilah Daise can already stand with support, and her mother is certain that she will soon begin to walk.
“Without a doubt, she will start walking soon. She stands at the moment. She puts so much weight on her legs. We’re not trying to make her stand. She just refuses to buckle her knees and sit down,” Mitchell said.
“She isn’t standing on her own yet but she stands holding us and is always trying to stand.”
The strength of Nyilah Daise’s neck and head means that her mother no longer has to hold them up.
“I’m shocked every day by her. She tries to push herself out of her little chair and bouncer when we put her in it too,” Michell said.
“She is a very alert baby and has been since she was born. From day one her strength was very shocking to us.’
At just over a month and a half old, the infant made attempts at speech by imitating Mitchell and her fiance Ofer Tzabari.
“We always say I love you to her and she seemed to be trying to repeat it to us and trying to say it. We couldn’t believe it. It is more like babbling but she is definitely trying to copy us,” Mitchell said.
“If she makes a noise and we laugh, she will keep making the noise because she knows we’ll react. She’s a very clever baby.”
Tzabari added, “She is such a smiley, happy baby and laughs all the time. The second you smile at her; she starts smiling and laughing back at us. She is such a happy baby and I hope her videos make everyone happy.”
Tzabari had assumed this was the typical for newborns until he heard otherwise.
“For me, it was the first time I’ve been with a newborn and I thought her actions were normal until people began to tell me they weren’t,” he admitted.
“I thought this was how babies were but actually her actions aren’t average for a baby of her age.”
The video, which was released to TikTok by Nyila Daise’s parents, has gone viral, with over 6.6 million people showing their disbelief.
“She gonna drive you home back from the hospital,” one person wrote.
“That baby has been here before and has things to do!” another quipped.
