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.

Childhood is the time when we as people are most open to new ideas, hobbies, manners etc. This is when we absorb the most from the world around us.

Breastfeeding twins or multiples may seem like an impossible job, but it isn't. And once you get some practice, you’ll enjoy it. When you start, you'll probably have the feeling that you're breastfeeding all day long and that you'll never have some free time just for yourself. Newborns (especially preemies) can nurse very often, even half an hour or so, which can be quite exhausting.
