Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/AddamsFamilyValues'' borders on parody, as Baby Pubert is even able to baby-talk and crawl as soon as he gets home from the hospital. And, of course, he has Gomez's mustache. This can probably all be {{justified}} by noting that Addamses aren't ''supposed'' to be normal.

This can have [[TheCoconutEffect an unfortunate side effect]], due to the fact that RealityIsUnrealistic, making a person's first encounter with a real newborn possibly {{squick}}y. Real newborns aren't clean-looking gurgling bundles of cuteness. Real newborns are covered in mucus, blood, amniotic fluid, and other bodily substances, up to and including fecal matter. There is a chance they could be covered in a peach fuzz-like substance called lanugo (a remnant of when our ancestors were a lot hairier than we are now; most fetuses lose it before birth, but obviously, a few don't). They may also be covered in a waxy substance called vernix caseosum, which is basically just congealed skin oils, dead cells, and lanugo. Their skin will usually have a red hue to it as well and look somewhat "wrinkly", especially if they are considerably premature. On top of all this, most newborns have noticeably misshapen heads from the birth process, since their skulls aren't yet closed and their bones are very flexible[[note]]Babies delivered by caesarean section either do not have this, or it is far less pronounced[[/note]]. To say nothing of the placenta that should be popping out with the babe. Even newborns that have been cleaned up and are a couple days old are generally UglyCute at best. It's been said that all newborn babies look like WinstonChurchill.

* Not shown on camera, but a ''LawAndOrder'' about infanticidal teen parents averted the sanitized-birth elements of this trope, citing as evidence the gory mess (blood, amniotic fluid, infant feces) which the birth made of a hotel room.

* The newest Creator/NicholasSparks movie ''The Choice'' offers an ''animal'' version of this. When the heroine's dog gives birth, the three puppies are seen are clearly ''not'' newborn pups, looking and acting far more like 8-week olds--eyes open, teeth, etc.
* New-born Johnny in ''Film/JohnnyBelinda'' looks at least three-month old.

* In ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', when Rapunzel is supposed to be so young that her parents are still celebrating her birth, she has flowing (magic) hair and can hold up her own head and focus and otherwise act months older. The narration describes the period of time before Gothel abducts her as "a moment."
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSwanPrincess'', the newborn princess Odette is shown as rather large, with a full head of hair and adorable cuteness at her party celebrating her birth.

* Averted in the Creator/TomClancy novel ''[[Literature/JackRyan The Bear and the Dragon]]'', where President Ryan allowed the press to briefly film his newborn fourth child shortly after his birth.
* Inverted in the ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'', Bothari tries to pass the newborn Ivan Vorpatril as being a few months old, but the person he's trying to fool quickly figures out that the boy's stated age would be correct if he changed 'weeks' to 'hours'.
