What to expect in a bewborn baby's Skin

The infant's Skin may be grayish blue or blotchy red. - The skin may peel for a few days after birth as in sunburn. The skin will shed off naturally. Don't try to peel it off because doing these so could hurt or scratch the baby's sensitive skin.

Lanugo - or dark and noticeable hair, may cover the baby's skin. It is obvious at the back, forehead, shoulders, and cheeks. This will fall off after a few weeks.

Greenish-Blue pigmentation on the lower back - this will disappear as the baby grows.

Small Pimple-like Rashes - appears on the face due to overactivity of the sweat glands.
