What are the health benefits of baby corn? Is baby corn really a type of corn?

In brief: Yes

Baby corn is a cereal grain that comes from corn plants when harvested early, so yes, a type of corn.
Because it is more immature, it is not as sweet and has a better glycemic index (that is lower) than sweet mature corn does. This type of corn is high in Folic Acid (important for brain health, pregnant women) and potassium.
