There is no emotion that can match up to the joy of holding your newborn for the first time. It will be difficult to look at the fruit of your love, and not wonder how you can create something so beautiful and innocent. In the weeks following the delivery, you will fall even more in love with it. You will forget about the difficulties of pregnancy and the pain of labor rather quickly. Even though you will have to deal with sleepless nights and heaps of dirty diapers, you will be so mesmerized that you won’t mind them at all. Here are some of the little things about your newborn that will have you head over heels in love with it.

1. Its Smell
Smelling your newborn is so delightful that it will make you want more. Their smell is one of the greatest pleasures your nose will know. It triggers the release of dopamine in the reward pathways of the brain – cocaine, food, sex, and gambling evoke the same response. It helps create that infant-mother bond.

Cupping these tiny structures in your hands and running the tip of your fingers on the soles will give you a deep sense of satisfaction that will only make it harder to stay away.

Watching your newborn sleep is one of the most peaceful things on the planet. Apart from being unbelievably cute, they are free of tension, which reflects on their faces when they sleep. You should take these moments as down times and get some shut eye for yourself.

You might get worried when your baby hiccups for the first time, but after you realize that frequent hiccups are normal, you will notice how wonderful they are. Both the sound and the look of surprise are adorable. You can keep your little one up straight and rub its back when it has the hiccups.

One of the things you will enjoy about your little one is how helpless it is. It will not be able to escape your cuddles, and you can dress it up the way you like. You can kiss it and play with it whenever you want, and you will never hear it complain.

You will be enchanted to see the way your little one’s arms and legs move when you leave it in its crib. These movements are involuntary reactions to stimuli. Their adorable legs are curled up even when they are not restricted, and their tiny hands are mostly clenched.
