The seventh episode of The Mandalorian sees the gang facing the Imperial forces that are in the search of the Child while they were heading back to Nevarro. Unfortunately, this attack left Greef Karga wounded. What follows is a scene where not only did Baby Yoda heal Karga, he was also able to suck out all the poison seeping out from his wounds. This scene is the first time that Force healing was canon.

And while a lot of fans were surprised by Baby Yoda’s capabilities, that’s not the only shocking thing about him. Kuill also revealed that the Child isn’t a clone and neither isn’t a product of genetic engineering of any kind. 

Contrary to what some of the fans speculated, Baby Yoda is NOT a clone of Jedi Master Yoda. This means that the Child’s abilities within the Force are innate. This could also mean that the unknown species of either the Child or Yoda himself are naturally powerful and connected within the Force.

Just like the Jedi Master, not much is revealed about Baby Yoda as well, and will likely stay that way since their species has always been seen as a mystery, which some fans prefer. That being said, it’s certainly interesting to see more of what Baby Yoda is capable of. Star Wars fans would definitely want to learn more about the adorable character after that reveal.
