7 Things to Know About Your Newborn

July 06, 2023


Can you believe that your sweet baby that grew inside you is now in your arms? It’s such a surreal, wonderful feeling. It’s like getting to know a tiny human that you’ve somehow known all along. They are complex, adorable, confusing little bundles. Here’s seven facts that might help you get to know your little one better!


1 | Your baby knows your voice. They have spent the last nine months soaking in your voice and can distinguish yours from others. How incredible!

2 | Red eyebrows and hiccups are often a sign that your baby is overtired.

3 | Newborns don’t cry real tears until around three weeks old.


4 | Your baby can only see objects in front of them, approximately 20-38 cm. They can only see shades of grey, black, and white. Their eyesight develops better around 3 months.

5 | Your sweet little babe will go through approximately 7,000 nappies by the time they are toilet trained! Holy moly! (A good reason to invest in non-toxic nappies!)


6 | A good rule of thumb (pun intended!) is that if your newborn has fists clenched, they might still be hungry. A full, content baby will often have relaxed hands.

7 | A newborns stomach on day 1 is only the size of a cherry. Suddenly the frequent feeds make sense!

Luvme Eco is truly a close-knit, family-owned business and today, it’s our birthday! Woo hoo! Luvme began nearly 14 years ago when Kendall and her mum, Laurie, were confronted with the fact that every year 1.5 billion disposable nappies end up in landfill in Australia every year! They knew they had to find a solution that was kinder to the Earth, for future generations. The first eco nappy was born not long after and the rest is history!
