What is the white cream-like substance that covers babies’ body after birth?

Babies are often born with a layer of vernix.

It looks gross.

For years, medical staff rushed to wash it off. Now they know that this stuff is like magical skin cream.

Leave it alone and it will sink into the baby’s skin and provide anti-bacterial protection and even wound healing.

Don’t try to wash it off, leave it there to do its job.
