I was standing near the escalator and suddenly noticed a young mother who tried to force her daughter to stand on a moving stage.

There is nothing terrible”.
At this point, tall silver-haired man, who was waiting to get on the escalator, leaned over to the little girl and said, “You know what it is? This is the ladder for young rabbits.

Then with a serious expression trustingly took his hand and together they went up the escalator.

Congratulations, you are the mother! I don’t have to listen to “pregnant” feelings, trying to guess what your child. Here he is next to you, primative and smiles in his sleep.
Wise nature has taken care that a newborn has evolved in line with its needs. Usually, at birth, the boys weigh between 2.9 to 3.9 kg with height 48,0 – 51,8 cm, weight girls is 2.8 -3,7 kg with a height of 47.3 – 51,0 cm*. Children are born with a reserve of fluid in the body, so it is quite normal that in the first few days they lose 7-10% of the weight.
The first hours of life of a newborn out of mommy’s belly is an endless stream of rapidly changing sounds, feelings and images, most of which are completely unfamiliar to him. A newborn baby is not yet able to separate themselves from the outside world, which seems to him not very hospitable.
