Although your womb is a warm and soft place, but because the space inside the womb is a little small, your baby cannot dive or roll over in it! Of course, he will continue to kick.

The head of the fetus is very soft and flexible at the beginning, and it gradually becomes harder with the absorption of calcium. His brain is not yet completely covered and closed by bone, and in fact, the bones of the skull are not yet completely connected. The largest of them is the scapular rhizome, which is located in the front of the head and is called the anterior malleus. There is another temple in the back of the head, which is smaller and not so noticeable.

Excess fat is stored in the buttocks, arms, legs and anywhere else that does not have a lot of fat.

Breastfeeding your baby is one of the ways to lose weight. In some women, all excess weight is lost by breastfeeding the baby, and some others have reported that they did not lose even 30 grams of weight until they weaned their baby.
