Are newborns ugly?

Max saw photos of a newborn with a bright thatch of red hair and skin as white as cream, 
and an expression on her little face that seemed to say, 
“What the hell am I doing here?”

Research says newborns rated 'less cute' than older babies

t turns out that adults find the faces of babies most appealing at around the six-month mark, says new research from Brock University.


Logan studied the tiny form bunking in a patch of dappled sunlight. 
He'd seen babies before, even had his share of personal contact with them. 
To him, newborns bore a strange resemblance to fish. Something about the eyes, he thought. 
And this one had all that black hair going for her, so she looked like a human sea creature. 
Sort of exotic and otherworldly.
If Gavin had been around, and Hayley out of hearing distance, he'd have suggested that this particular baby looked something like the offspring of Aquaman and Wonder Woman.
The kid would've gotten it.
Babies always intimidated him. 
Something about the way they looked right back at you, 
as if they knew a hell of a lot more than you did and 
were going to tolerate you until they got big enough 
to handle things on their own.
