You might hate math, be shorter and petite compared to the average, get indigestion after a big meal and never understand things until actually get to try them yourself. Or, you may be a math wiz, tall and muscled, get bad gas after eating some types of vegetables and learn things best by skim reading.
No matter what differences you have, they make you who you are – different and unique. You probably don’t worry that it means there’s a problem.
Having a baby is scary, and it’s hard to know what’s right, especially when the internet gives mothers so much access to information without any filters. But in the end, most of what you and your baby experience will be completely normal – for them and you.
Just like you, your baby is their own unique person. They’re never going to hit the average, because the average is made up of thousands of babies. Your baby is not those babies.
