Share the Hugs

Share Hugs (1)

Today’s prompt in my baby activity book was to remember to share hugs, which sounds like a no-brainer, but the book meant not just with your newborn! Babies come into whole families, not just into parent-to-infant twosomes, and today was about all kinds of hugs.

Travis loves to hold little sis Veronika, and although I find myself hesitating – make sure to support her hand! Don’t leave them unattended! – it’s important to grant his request. Today he leaned in for a sibling hug and my heart melted.

While you’re focusing on hugs for the day, remember to hug your older children, if you have them.

Hug your partner, or a close family member. Hug a friend. Hugs help the caregiver, as well as the baby getting the care.

And of course, hug your little squishie infant against you close.
