***"The definition of a genetic mutation is:
'The process by which such a change occurs in a chromosome, either through an alteration in the
nucleotide sequence of the DNA coding for a gene or through a change in the physical arrangement of a
chromosome.'" ***

However, I am afraid that you are wrong here. If there were no changes at birth, then the baby would be a clone of one of the parents. Mutation does happen in every birth, at least until cloning becomes the rage.
