Have you ever been in line at the grocery store, and seen a mom or dad holding a little baby, and found yourself desperately wanting to hold that baby, too? I’m a guy, and I have totally had this experience; it’s not just limited to women. The urge to cuddle that sweet little thing and smell its soft baby scented skin can be nearly overwhelming. What’s up with that?
Then it hit me; there is probably no stronger aphrodisiac for the parent whose children have reached preschool age than seeing a cute little baby. It’s some sort of biological trick. This urge to hold a tiny baby again and the accompanying amnesia about the sleep deprivation and toxic diapers associated with a newborn baby create a dangerous biochemical mix.
So, venture forward in this post at your own risk. Neither I nor the management of Babble.com take responsibility for the baby-powder scented urges the following photos may induce, or the resulting population explosion that will surely follow in 9 months. Am I the only one who has this temporary insanity hit you at the sight of a cute baby?
Here are 15 totally adorable baby photos I recommend you don’t view. You were warned!
