Do you remember what do you expected about how your new baby is going to look?
Perhaps you are a mother or a father-to-be, and perhaps, like many of us, you may expect that your baby will be one of the soft, rosy-cheeked babies you see in a magazine advertisement.
Your newborn’s appearance may surprise you. Newborns tend to initially look purple, then pink, and have cute little wrinkles!
It is absolutely normal that your baby will have wet and peeling skin.
This is a consequence of the exposition of the baby’s skin to the air after the warm amniotic fluid.
You can notice, too, that newborns commonly get little pimples on the face in the first couple of weeks of life, they are due to withdrawal from mom’s hormones during pregnancy.
Sometimes, babies have a yellow skin tone called jaundice, because their liver is immature and they are getting rid of old red blood cells.
Unless your doctor tells you another thing you must not be worried.
But, although she doesn’t look like a babies’ magazine baby, your baby is the most beautiful baby in the world, isn’t she?
