I have read that when a young child is first born, he or she will resemble their father in their first months of life. A study done in 1995 confirmed this. Allegedly, this is nature's paternity test. Some other studies claim to disprove it, and in one, they concluded that mothers have a sort of natural instinct to make comments on how the kid looks like the father to assure her partner of his paternity.
I've seen this asked online, and lots of mothers said yes, with many actually stating that the baby first resembled their father, then switched to looking like the mother. But others said it was not true.
So this poll is to any GAG parent. Did the baby look like the father or not at birth?

i think it varies. drjohno is right. its really hard to tell who the baby looks like when they're newborns. they pretty much all look the same; red, swollen and peely.
i have always looked like my mom. and my sister's kids look like her boyfriend, but they always have. they don't seem to change. when they were newborns, they didn't really look like either of them. and my friend's baby now looks like the father, but when she was born, she didn't look like anyone either.
so I'm not sure. from all the babies I've met since they were born, none of them looked like any of the parents. they just look like regular newborns, either bald or with hair.0
