FACTS ABOUT THE NEWBORN

  • A newborn can recognize her parents from other people.


  • The skin could be wrinkled and reddish, nothing like the advertisement images you expect.


  • His head can be a little pointed than round, bland at the top center because bones have not come together yet, the primary reason why babies’ head is flexible during birth.


  • Newborn eye’s color may change before they are one year old.


  • Girls and boys breast can be swollen and may have a slight discharge; this is caused by the mother’s hormones.
