Coat may be peeling on the hands and feet and a few babies may have perceptible downy body hair. But all these will disappear on their own accord.

Hands and Feet

The fingernails of the baby seem long at birth. The legs look hooked as he had been untruthful curled in the womb.


The eyes may look as if they are squint. This is very general in the first months. Puffy or blood shot eyes should be checked by the medical doctor.


The nose may become visible flat as the bone hasn’t yet totally developed.


Most of the baby’s genitals look large. There may have a milky discharge from the breasts and sometimes blood or discharge from the vagina in a baby girl. This is because of an infusion of mother’s hormones from the placenta, just before birth. This is perfectly normal and will soon disappear.

Mental Ability:

Mostly all babies are wide awake and alert during the first little hours after birth. They are concerned to human sights specially faces and human sound. They have a grasp reflex and sucking reflex.
