Love at first sight – Why we can’t stop starring at our newborn baby.
If you find yourself staring at your newborn for hours on end, know that It’s a natural and beautiful part of the motherhood journey, and a testament to the love and awe that you feel for your little one.
As a new Mum, you’ve likely noticed that you find yourself staring at your newborn for hours on end. And you’re not alone – this is a common phenomenon among new mothers. But why do we do it? What is it about these tiny little beings that can keep us so captivated and spellbound?
First and foremost, it’s the awe-inspiring miracle of life. Your baby is a symbol of new beginnings and the realisation of your dreams. It’s hard not to be filled with wonder as you gaze upon their tiny fingers, toes, and nose.
But it’s not just about the physical appearance of your baby. It’s also about the bond that you are forming with them. As you stare into their eyes, you’re establishing a connection that is unlike anything else in the world. You’re communicating your love, your protection, and your commitment to them in a way that words simply can’t describe. And let’s not forget about the sleep deprivation that often comes with being a new mom. When you’re up all night with a fussy baby, it can be hard to keep your eyes open during the day. Staring at your baby is a way to keep yourself alert and focused, and it also provides a much-needed distraction from the fatigue that you’re feeling.
Starring at our baby is a way to capture memories. You’ll never again be at this stage in your life or in your baby’s, and it’s natural to want to soak up every moment.
This is why I LOVE capturing all the little details of your baby. So when they are bigger, you can forever remember these moments. These details.
Enjoy the moments, capture the memories, and revel in the wonder of your new baby.
