Fetal Fact of the Day

32 weeks - Fat layers continue to get deposited under the baby’s skin and the bones of the baby harden except for the skull. The skull needs to be soft and flexible for the delivery. The pressure on the head during child birth is so strong that many times babies are born with a cone head like appearance! These bones don’t fuse until early adulthood and so they grow as the brain and other tissues expand during infancy and childhood.
