Did you know these strange, but true things about newborns?? 🤓
Sometimes those little nuances that baffle us are completely normal and made for a reason. 🙌
As a new mom, I remember wondering how baby knew instinctively to suck – suck his thumbs, hands, or root lips. It was as though he was doing it in the womb for months!💡(True indeed😅!!)
In fact, there are numerous things that babies are born with or made to do that may surprise you.
New Born Baby Facts
Did you know newborn babies…
🌟 Are near-sighted (to focus on you dear mama)
🌟 Cry (a lot) but do not shed tears initially
🌟 Lose weight after birth as they learn to breastfeed and latch properly
🌟 Are born with extra bones that later harden and fuse to fit through the birth canal (about 300 while adults have 206)
🌟 Are fast/learners, taking in and adjusting from experiences (at a pretty genius-rate)
🌟 Are born with the ability to swim (thank you womb 🙌)
🌟 Know who YOU are based on scent, sound and the love he’s been learning for the past nine months ❤️
So incredibly interesting and eye-opening!!
