Baby development: First month with a newborn


The baby’s development

Baby’s skin

Your baby’s skin in the first few weeks may be discolored, may look reddish or bright pink, and may be blotchy. Also the skin itself may be wrinkled, loose and scaly in some places. This is normal, so don’t panic, most of the babies are born like this. You can notice other marks such as vernix – cheesy covering on your baby’s skin, milia – tiny white spots around his nose and chin and lanugo – fine hair around his neck, back and shoulders.
