The Truth about the New Baby Smell

Want the unvarnished truth?

truth about new baby smell

That lovely "new baby" smell is really just a combination of the following:

  • milk
  • spoiled milk that seeped into the folds in a baby's neck and has yet to be cleaned out
  • Poo
  • Poo that has exploded out of the diaper and all the way up their backs into their hair
  • Cradle cap ( or cradle cr@p as we call it)
  • Spit Up
  • Throw up (the difference being that throwing up involves projectile motion)
  • Decaying umbilical cord

And yet, I still offer to go to someone's house who has just had a new baby, to hold it, and breathe in that new baby smell. Plus when they are really little, their poo smells like buttered popcorn, so you can just pretend it's something else:)

Check out how we welcomed our third baby into the family and "made" the older siblings love her, how we fit all three kids in car seats across in our car, and my tips for airplane travel with kids.

HA!!! We totally call it that too... cradle... I even asked my Dr what to do about it. He looked at me for a second before I realized what I had said. Hey, it made me laugh.
