Children, tho’ they have Ideas, in the Womb, have none innate.       §5. Therefore I doubt not but Children, by the exercise of their
Senses about Objects, that affect them in the Womb, receive some few
Ideas, before they are born, as the unavoidable effects, either of the
Bodies that environ them, or else of those Wants or Diseases they
suffer; amongst which, (if one may conjecture concerning things
not very capable of examination) I think the Ideas of Hunger and
Warmth are two: which probably are some of the first that Children
have, and which they scarce ever part with again.
Locke Hum II, 9, §5, p. 144
