Your baby's got a second skin!

At week 19, the reproductive organs of your baby will fully grow and are well established as per the gender of your baby. The skin of your baby will start producing a protective substance called vernix caseosa. This coating is made from the oil secreted by the skin, dead cells and lanugo that protects the skin of your little one from the effects of floating in amniotic fluid. Lot of this coating disappears before the birth but preterm babies are born with lot of this covering on their body.Your baby's got a second skin!

This is a white and waxy substance that is slippery in nature and if you see your baby with it then you will feel that your baby was all surrounded with glue inside you. But don’t worry at all, doctors will clean up this coating from the body of the baby before handing him over to you.
