  • Baby's brain is still developing and building more nerves and connections between them and the same will continue throughout its early childhood. Baby is also busy making immune system stronger and developing its lungs, the baby’s lung will continue to mature till your baby reaches 8 years of age.

  • Meconium, the baby’s first stool present in the baby's intestines will be shed as the first movement after birth. Meconium is a black, thick, tarry substance and in about 30% of the time, the baby will actually pass this stool before birth.

  • Many babies have enlarged genitals when they are born. This is result of pregnancy hormones causing them to swell. Over first few weeks after birth the enlarged genitals do settle down to their normal size.
