Did you think your baby was ugly when they were born?

I did. But she is sooooo beautiful to me now, when she was born she had a flat nose, really dark and was really swollen from her face. So I thought to myself omg she's so ugly my poor baby, she looks like a rat. But 5 months later she's beautiful.

  • I'm not going to even lie (but I'll answer anon) I thought my dd looked like a little wrinkled old man. But after a month or so she started to fill out.

  • I didn't think that about my DD, but I have about some of my friends kids. I love all of those children like they are my own, but man they all weren't cute at as babies.

  • My daughter was a beautiful newborn. No redness, perfect pettite face,etc.

    My son on the other hand wasn't as gorgeous as a newborn, he was red and wrinkley and very thin. He got a lot cuter as he got older though. ;)

  • I hear alot of people saying that babies are ugly when they are born, I think they are beautiful! Think about it, the poor baby has spent ten months of it s life floating in water and squished!

  • My son was a c-section baby. When the doc showed him to me he was blue and his cheeks were so fat. I thought he looked like a blue jelly bean. Once he was wiped off he was filled out very well, had a full head of black hair and was beautiful. He has always been a handsome little man.
