How will my Babies look?


Although you’ll have been bombarded with images of chubby cheeks and rolls of fat for the past eight months (or less), chances are your babies won’t look like this when they arrive. Premature babies do look very different to full-term babies when they’re born; they’re likely to have significantly less body fat, may appear somewhat wrinkled and can often have a layer of fine, downy hair – lanugo, which protects their skin in utero and is a result of exposure to hormones during pregnancy – covering them as they haven’t had the chance to get rid of it before birth.
