Ten MindBlowingNursing NewBorn Facts👇🏽.
10 -when the baby is placed on mom's stomach & as soon as the skin to skin contact is made, the infant instinctively knows how to utilize his limbs to scoot forward and reach the mother's breasts.
9 -Those soft spots on the head have a purpose which assist childbirth, allowing the head to change shape and the bones to effortlessly slide over each other while passing through the canal.
8 - ARE YOU SERIOUS? Lol Babies have far more bones than adults. When the little bundles are born, they have 300 bones while adults have closer to 200. Crazy right? Lol
7 - Newborns can't see anything more than eight to 12 inches away, at least not clearly. So what right? As long as they can see their fam when they close.
6 - Newborns have no penchant for sodium. In fact babies can't even taste the otherwise unmistakable flavor of salt, not until they are about four months old.
5 - They don't need any water until they are six months of age, because till that point, they receive all the hydration and nutrients they need through breast milk.
4 - Right from birth, an infant is attracted to the scent of breast milk.
3 - Watching your newborn sleep...there's nothing better, except for those few moments when they stop breathing for a short amount of time.
2 - Newborns don't have kneecaps...well not in the traditional sense. What's under that skin is actually cartilage that looks, on the outside, like a miniature kneecap. No worries though, kneecaps do form over time.
1 - Babies, they certainly know how to cry, which is ridiculous because I hear my moms daycare but it's because they're hungry, sleepy or had a code brown..lol
