How should the nurse respond to “my baby looks like a conehead”?
The first thing that you might say is, “well, he is new.”
This may not be enough for some people. If this person was your mother or father and they were concerned about how their child looked because they had never seen them before, then it would be important to reassure them by saying something like, “it’s ok that he looks different from other children his age. Babies grow up quickly and will soon look just like everyone else!”
How should the nurse respond? There are many ways in which you can reply with reassurance if someone says their child looks like a conehead.
