When will my baby be able to remember things?

In brief: Very early

Let's put it this way: a child whom i gave a first shot at 1-2 months of age, usually looks at me very suspiciously at the next visit.

In brief: They already do!

Babies are born with certain abilities to remember, but as they develop and all those little brain nerve (neuron) connections are expanding and hooking up, they make better and better associations and recognize repetitive patterns more and more, easier and easier. The "memory" they are born with is different from what we think of, but it is still memory.
