Calendar of newborn development newborn photo and the first record of a newborn child.

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.

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*.
