My newborn has very dry skin

Hi - my little girl is 4 days old and was born with really dry skin. My midwife has told me to use olive oil on her skin but she cries when I do. I think it might be hurting her. Can you give me some advice and perhaps an alternative cream please?

Testicle not 'hanging' correctly

On behalf of Barney: I have recently noticed that my left testicle doesn't seem to be 'hanging' as it normally does. When I look in a mirror, I have noticed that it is quite tight and high.

What could it be?

Needing to pee more
