My friend’s son could shimmy himself across a bed at barely a week old. I was led to believe that they were incapacitated for the first few weeks, lol.

Not exactly about newborns per se, but I never knew that some babies never crawl.  When my friend told me that her baby never crawled and eventually just went straight to walking I was completely surprised.

@skibobrown: Haha I was one of those babies myself. I started walking at 9 months old and pretty much skipped crawling all together!

My daughter’s arms would fly up like a Frankenstein/Zombie/Mummy type thing in her sleep. If you coughed, or she heard a noice, her arms would fly up straight out! So weird looking, but awfully cute.

I really don’t like dealing with the umbilical stump coming off. I avoided changing diapers when ever they were getting loose. I don’t know why, but those are gross to me:)

Babies are nature’s greatest “fart joke.” Not kidding. 😀 They make all sorts of funny “inappropriate” noises. And if you have very rich breastmilk, their diapers smell like buttered popcorn.  x.X

@penguinsaremyfriends: Luckily I know what it’s called now, I actually ran to the pediatrician thinking there was something horribly wrong ha! Gotta love being a new mom :0)

@KatyElle: That is too funny. I would always check the reflexes just to see if they really worked:)

I didn’t know babies could have projectile poop until the 2am diaper change that ended with me covered in poo.  I was so shocked I literally froze, with his legs in the air and a wipe in my other hand.

I think I was most weirded out by the amount of poo that could come out of such a little person. Her poo is bigger than her tummy is. How does it fit in there?
