it is better to call babies who are just becoming aware, as agnostic than atheist(to be sure you could call them both depending on definitions, but this is focusing on having to choose which is better)the commonly accepted approach to atheism and agnosticism, is to say the first is no belief either way, and atheism as a proactive disbelief in God.the oxford disctionary defines agnostic as "a person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God."
