Why we can’t remember our childhood

Firstly, the first 5 years of your life is most likely to be the part where you have no memory of. It’s because your brain is still developing in a way during that time and your brain cannot pick up any real experiences to store. I mean you sleep most of the day as a baby anyway, so there’s not much to remember.

As young children, we just aren’t able to make stable memories of events. You can’t access a memory, the logic goes.
