Your Baby’s Genitalia

It is normal for genitalia to be slightly enlarged and red in a full term baby.  This is because of hormones from the mother and should go away with time.

Baby girls may also have a white discharge from the vaginal area and occasionally may even have a little blood from this area.  Both are because of hormones from the mother and should resolve with time.
