Colostrum, dubbed liquid gold because of its incredible antibody and nutrient content, is the precursor to the breast milk that will very soon feed your bundle of joy. Until then your baby will need just a few teaspoons of the antibody-rich colostrum per feeding for all her nourishment. Your body starts to produce colostrum in the first trimester, but moms-to-be usually don't start leaking breast milk until closer to the end of pregnancy, if it happens at all when they're pregnant. Your breasts are leaking during pregnancy because prolactin, the hormone responsible for milk production after the birth of your baby , starts revving up while you're still pregnant, usually in the third trimester. If prolactin levels slightly outpace those of the estrogen and progesterone, colostrum can leak out a bit.

In about three to four percent of boys, the testicles hang out upstairs a while longer, lingering until some lads turn a year old. Both boy and girl babies are producing lots of sex hormones now, which will explain why the genitals may appear large and swollen at birth… and in the case of a little man, why the scrotal skin may appear darkly pigmented in the first few weeks after birth.
