A new baby’s nose is generally somewhat flat and wide. It may even seem bent to one side, because of pressure in your uterus or birth canal. It will usually straighten out fairly soon after delivery.

When your baby sneezes, it helps to clear his airway and doesn’t necessarily mean that he has a cold. Babies have a great sense of smell. Within the first days of life, your baby will be able to recognize you simply by your scent.
