19 Vernix Frosted Babies

Vernix.
The ultimate baby lotion. 
Did you know that, besides being a really awesome first moisturizer, vernix also has some amazing uses?

It's an antimicrobial that helps to protect baby in the womb.

It's a lubricant that helps baby to slide through the birth canal.

It helps to muffle the sound in the womb.


Also, did you know that humans are the only species to have vernix.

 

What do you do when your baby is born covered in vernix?
RUB IT IN!
Also, no need to bathe baby right away.
