If you're anything like me, you probably didn't buy into the whole magical vibe of pregnancy and childbirth. I never got the famed glow — the closest I came to that was the copious amount of sweat on my face after heaving. And my birthing experience wasn't exactly a Kodak moment either. So it's not too surprising to discover the gross things babies do in their first hour on Earth. Sure, you are probably familiar with the many disgusting things you'll encounter as a new parent — like explosive diarrhea, spit up, and inexplicable stickiness — but it's amazing how much tiny humans can accomplish in their first 60 minutes.
These bizarre feats aren't exactly covered in your prenatal classes, pregnancy books, or during conversations with fellow moms-to-be. But there's nothing to be embarrassed about when it comes to the human body. Bodily fluids, strange sounds, and messy accidents are all a part of being a mammal. Still, it's nice to feel prepared for what happens after delivering so you won't be too shocked when your precious newborn does some pretty disgusting things. So, whether this is going to be your first child or you're third, check out these gross things babies do in their first hour on Earth to gain some new insight.
