Young women who become mothers for the first time and hug their newborn baby may be surprised, even frightened by its appearance: with a flattened head, with yellow skins on the head, no hair, blue-violet feet. Relax, your baby is the most beautiful - give him a little time to adjust to life!
Here is how the appearance of the baby changes from the day of birth:
The elongated head regains its shape within a few days after birth.
The bare head will be covered with hair by 7-8 months, depending on the genes. The first baby hairs will fall around the first year, when permanent hair will start to grow.
Blonde hair, if not genetically inherited, darkens by the first-second year, but it is possible to keep it until the sixth-seventh.
The fontanelle closes by the first year or a little earlier.
Forked tongue normalizes by first year.
Blue eyes, if not a hereditary trait, will change to their usual color half a year after birth.
Strabismus - the deviation of the eyes in which the visual axes are not parallel - will disappear after the 6th month.
The swelling and redness of the eyes will subside within a few days after birth.
The bluish feet and palms will gradually turn to the natural pink color of the skin by a day or two after birth.
Inverted feet can be corrected with massages for up to one year.
