  • 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.
  • Don't be frightened if your OB-GYN says your baby is large as it is extremely difficult to judge a baby's weight accurately from outside.
