Newborns & Scent

Did you know that your baby learns your scent in the womb and when they emerge if they are not bathed right away they can recognize the scent of you on their own hands? Fascinating to learn about the study. It's another reminder of how perfectly we're designed to grow and nourish these babies.

This little one was with her mother from the moment she emerged but after a bit they decided to see how much she weighed. When she was on the warmer/scale she was happily shoving this little fist in her mouth and I was able to explain how she recognizes that scent! It was neat to see.

Plus she's just adorable. 🙂
