Your Baby’s Appearance at Fifth Month of Life As she's getting older, your baby is also getting bigger. She no longer has curled up appearance as a newborn, and it's possible that she'll need a new car seat (look for a convertible seat that can be positioned both backward and forward, depending on your child's age).

Your Baby’s Appearance at Fourth Month of Life. Your baby is probably drooling for a month or two, but now is the time when you can actually expect for a first tooth to appear (it's usually a bottom front one). It's still early, but don't be surprised if you see a white cap in your baby's gums. You may also notice that your baby’s eyes are starting to change color.

During the first few months, newborns often lose their hair and start to grow a new hair that can be completely different than the hair they're born with. There's nothing you can do about your newborn's hair loss if it's related to hormone levels, but if bald spots appear because your baby spends too much time in the same position, you should try alternating the way she sleeps and make sure she has some tummy-time during each day.

Your newborn baby might not look as you expected. Newborns have soft, fuzzy hair everywhere - on their ears, shoulders, back… This hair is called lanugo, and it’s nothing you should worry about since it’ll eventually fall off. Also, their skin is full of acne - but not all blemishes on your baby’s skin are acne. Tiny white bumps are called milia and you don’t have to do anything about them - they’ll go away in first few weeks. Newborns might also have swollen breasts and genitals, due to the additional estrogen and fluid that your baby retains, but soon everything will return to normal.

And, for a lot of the kids I know, it means back to public school, and the school bus transportation you take to get there. For kids who are going to school, or at least riding the bus, for the first time, this can be very scary. For their parents it’s usually even scarier.
