Why Is That Baby So Hairy?

Also: parenting at scale and how to support a shy kid.
A roundup of new guidance and stories from NYT Parenting.

Have you ever wondered why babies sneeze so many times in a row, or why some creepy babies sleep with their eyes open? Erika R. Cheng demystified some of the most common newborn oddities for us.

Also new to the site this week: a guide by Melinda Wenner Moyer on how to support a shy kid, advice from parents of large families about navigating “parenting at scale” (customizable burrito bowls! clothing rental services!) and new findings on why “Baby-Friendly” hospitals may not be quite as friendly to moms. We also ran a gorgeous piece by Cassie Chambers about losing her mother while she was pregnant. “Becoming a mother made me feel connected to my mom in a new way. I understood how much she loved me, because I loved my son that much,” Cassie wrote.

Thanks for reading!

Do ‘Baby-Friendly’ Hospitals Work for All Moms?

Ditching formula, nurseries and pacifiers is supposed to help encourage breastfeeding, but the research is mixed on whether the approach is best.

Grieving My Mother as I Became a Mother

I’d counted on my mom, an expert on child development, to help me learn to parent my son. The thought of managing without her was terrifying.
