Normal newborn stuff
These things have something to do with transitioning from a swimming
pool environment (where the babies are breathing amniotic fluid) to breathing
in an air environment.
Because of this transition:
Hiccups are normal
Sneezing a lot is normal
skin of a newborn is bound to be pretty scaly and dry and
pretty darn unresponsive to any kind of lotion. You can try, mind you, but
don't expect that even your favorite lotion is going to help skin that's been
surrounded by water for months!
For those of you with baby boys, To circumcize or not to circumcize: That is the question!
Something all babies need is
umbilical cord care.
