Question: My baby girl is56 days old...she is having some white colour liquid coming from her vagina...is it normal??
Answer: Hi dear, Yes,few babies do get such white discharges.that is usually due to maternal hormones or baby hormones.It can be shocking to see discharge on a newborn, but fortunately, it's very common and very normal, so it's nothing to be concerned about.During pregnancy, there are high levels of hormones circulating in the body that cross the placenta and reach the baby. In newborns girls, these high levels of hormones can cause vaginal discharge. You can keep the area clean with clean moist cotton cloth.keep the area dry too. Make her wear cotton nappies and avoid diapers during day time.this should be fine in few weeks.if it persists post few weeks,check with doctor.
