Did You Know Facts #53

Did you know this strange fact about the bizarre thing babies eat inside the womb?

When a foetus is about four months into the pregnancy it develops a moustache that, spreads over its entire body.

It then is digested and becomes part of its first poop (called meconium).Did You Know Facts - Babies eat their moustache 53
