“Don’t panic. Your weird baby is likely normal.” So begins the intro to an informative (if slightly gross) article on CNN detailing the the myriad of unfortunate-looking ailments afflicting newborns today.
Thought colic was your biggest problem? Think again! Try having an infant with crossed eyes, a third nipple, an alarmingly gigantic belly button, ample baby boobs, acne or, better yet, all of the above.
Don’t worry, your pediatrician will quickly reassure you that every single one of those conditions is perfectly normal. In fact, many will (eventually) dissipate on their own. Probably even before Junior’s second birthday!
Until then? Take comfort in knowing that you’re in possession of a happy, healthy baby! Albeit one who scares the living crap out of everyone else.
