  • My husband and I thought our daughter's belly looked weird like you are describing. We were thinking maybe it was gas or something but my mom said she looked normal to her. My husband and I were not familiar with babies until our daughter came along.

  • Charisma that doesn't neccisarily mean that's what that is. It could mean that it is simply gas.
