Be it preparing for parenthood or enjoying the happiness of carrying the baby for nine months, parents plan everything to welcome their newborn baby. Although they try to school themselves by reading books and attending classes, one cannot wonder but have to admire the quirkiness and oddities in the newborn baby. Instead of running down to the pediatrician for projectile poop and wandering eyes, here are a few weird things one should know about the newborn.
According to the Bump, certain unusualness like cradle crap is pretty standard in newborn babies. One need not worry about cradle crap as any dryness or flakiness, it will go away within the child’s first few months of growth.
What do parent experts say?
As per parenting expert and pediatricians, applying baby oil on the patches twice or thrice a week is fine but one has to worry, if the rash spreads beyond the baby‘s scalp or grows beyond that, better consult a doctor regarding prescribed ointment.
Parenthood is not complete without blowing out a diaper or two. However, parents have to worry if they find any blood in fecal matter. Though babies cry a lot and do all sorts of funny things like grunting, groaning, snorting, according to Levine, such noise is created through babies’ nasal passage which is pretty narrow in the newborn stage. Still notice whether baby grunts with each breath, if so they might be suffering from troubled breathing. Babies are sensitive to a lot of things and they sneeze because of the sun and allergies. It is still advisable to check with your pediatrician if baby’s sneeze is accompanied by wheezing.
