|A new study has found that babies are good at identifying problems and gesturing to indicate them before they learn to speak.
The study, conducted by researchers at Germany's Max Planck Institute, found that infants of just 12 months are able to point to objects if they think that adults need help.
As part of the research, scientists dropped objects in front of 60 babies and either watched them fall or pretended that they had not seen.
They then pretended to look puzzled and asked the babies where the object had gone.
