The baby was born, when the father saw him, he run out and asked for help. Often, newborns will smile in their sleep. Sometimes a smile in the early weeks of life is simply a sign that your little bundle is passing gas. But starting between six and eight weeks of life, babies develop a social smile, an intentional gesture of warmth meant just for you. This is an important milestone beyond the cuteness explosion you can expect when babies start smiling around six to twelve weeks.
It’s also an exciting time for their development. Baby’s vision and facial recognition are improving, and they’re outgrowing their early reflexes. They’re also beginning to express feelings such as excitement or contentment. There have been long signs that newborn smiles could signal positive emotions. To some extent, smiles have been noted in the first few days of life as a response to stroking of the cheek or the belly.
Newborns also smile in response to sweet tastes and smells. To most parents, the idea that mom is typically the primary caregiver isn’t a big deal. After all, the baby probably just came out of mom’s body and will want to stay near her for at least a couple of months. Besides, if mom was breastfeeding, she’s the default nutrition provider too. But that doesn’t mean dads can’t be hands on parents and bond with the baby just as much as mom.
In fact, it’s disappointing to know that so many dads aren’t allowed the opportunity to bond with their babies just because they didn’t give birth. While dad shouldn’t take away from new moms bonding time with newborns, he deserves his time too. And although society seems to think most new dads are incapable of putting a onesie on right, many dads take offense at the idea that fatherhood is about playing with the baby when he gets home from work and leaving mom to do the rest.
Although it’s less common, some dads are even sold caregivers while mom works or if they’re single from the start. The truth is, most dads are just as capable as moms, and spending time alone with the baby is the only way they can prove themselves to doubters like society in general, and their mothers in law.
This is the adorable video of wide eyed baby Charlotte being amazed by her father’s playful noises. The new virtual clip has received over 300,000 views in just a few days and shows a restless Charlotte on her dad’s knees, looking in wonderment at the noises he makes, which appear to stop her crying. Dad Adam revealed that her twin Grayson, is completely opposite to his sister. Grayson is perfectly docile and absolute breeze of a baby. His sister, on the other hand, has a bit of colic, adam said after bouncing, rocking, swinging, singing, talking and massaging her tummy.
One particular rough evening, her mother and I just started making noises out of desperation. This one seemed to click. It was the first time she stopped crying in almost an hour. Since the video went viral, office worker Adam from Kentucky has been bombarded by phone calls and emails asking to use the hilarious video footage. Fatherhood is confounding the baby with new sounds, dad writes in the video description.
He then proceeds to make all sorts of weird noises and film his new daughter’s reaction. Being a newborn, she can’t yell, hey dad, stop that. So she insisted, simply gives the camera cute but crazy eyes. The video quickly went viral, scoring more than 800,000 views in three days as Internet users were quite taken with the baby’s adorable reaction.
Comments also ran rampant with people comparing the child’s eyes to an alien from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Total Recall and from seeing the father’s cut off jean shorts, stirring comparisons to David Cross never nude character from Arrested Development to Bias Funk in a blog post.
The amateur dad of twins baby Charlotte. In this video, her brother Grayson has not become a viral star yet gives interesting advice to parents who might want to put their babies on YouTube and other sites. He warns not to let negative comments bother owners, and perhaps more importantly, he suggests people always dress as if the Internet is watching. He explains his old pair of jeans are simply so worn with massive holes that from the angle the video is filmed, it looks like he’s wearing jeans shorts. Some users on the video hosting site YouTube have attacked Adam, calling him a bad parent and accusing him of traumatizing the baby.
Thankfully though, users have stuck up for the parents, Adam and Ashley, with one user called Uncle Stumpy commenting and to. Everyone thinks that the father is messing up for doing this. Obviously has never been a parent or had to deal with a crying baby. Support has been flooding in worldwide for the Kentucky couple. YouTube user Amateur Dramatic said oh, what a lovely little cherub.
Congratulations on your little one. While every baby is cute and charming in their own way, some of them come out looking so old that you might mistakenly call them sir. Board Panda has compiled a list of Benjamin Button style cute babies who look like they came out of the womb already, complaining about the room temperature and playing bingo. Some of these funny kids resemble superstar actors who became famous not for their adonis lookalikes, such as Danny DeVito and Steve Busimee, while others in these baby pictures look like they traveled straight out of a medieval painting just a lot cuter. But no matter how wrinkly, dissatisfied or cranky these funny kids might look, there’s no denying that they’re still adorable babies capable of conquering any heart.
And hey, being born is a tough enough job. Continue scrolling to check out these quirky three month olds who took the expression they grow up so fast to another level. Trust us, these funny baby pictures are just what you need on a slow workday morning. Babies may get some surprising benefits if they look like their father. A team of researchers have discovered that infants raised by single mothers are more likely to be healthy by the time they turn one year old if they resemble their dad.
That’s because babies who bear a resemblance to their father get more attention from them, and the more time that babies spend with their fathers, the healthier they become. For the study, researchers from Binghamton University and Southern Illinois University focused on 715 families in which babies live with only their mother. Fathers are an important part in raising a child, and it manifests itself in the health of the child, said Solomon Pulled, a Czech, a co author of the study and economics professor at Binghamton University State University of New York. Dads who looked like their babies spent an average of 2.5 more days per month with their babies than fathers who didn’t resemble their offspring. This effect doesn’t apply to babies who are born to married parents that live in the same household as men, are more certain than they are of the father, and spend more time with children who live under the same roof, the study noted.
It’s totally natural for children to look a little or a lot like their parents. When you’re young, you get pretty used to people looking you over and telling you that you have the same eyes as your dad or hair just like your mom. Some people say these things even when they aren’t true. That’s formalities for you. However, there are some families who bear much more than a slight passing resemblance to one another.
It’s no secret that today’s society is overrun with technology. One of the most common things used each day is a smartphone. So many people don’t bother printing out photos anymore, and everything is just snapped on a mobile phone and then stored digitally on places like Facebook. We urge you all to make hard copies of your most cherished photos. As before you know it, you end up deleting and replacing photos, then regretting it later.
Look how wonderful the old school photos in this post. Look. So many of these photos have blown us away. It’s incredible how identical some of these family members look. It’s crazy that even after introducing a whole new person’s DNA, that the resulting child can still be a spitting image of just one parent.
It’s also incredible that in some cases, it goes even further than this. A few grandchild grandparent comparisons in the mix are also mind blowing. The way DNA works and why we are the way we are will always baffle us. We would be curious to see what the future generations of these families turn out like. We’re sure for some of them, the trend of looking similar would continue on.
Hopefully, in 20 years or so, people can upload new comparison photos. We think looking identical to a parent is a pretty awesome thing, and it must be particularly special for those who lost their parents at a young age or before birth to look at.
Keep going to see our final set of images showing lookalike family members always dads and babies are amazing mix new dad Mike wasn’t so sure about his son when the baby was first born. He told parenting that he almost thought the baby was a mistake, but that the feeling passed relatively quickly. While most moms won’t be surprised by this, since PPD is unfortunately so common, it’s not so often that it happens to dads.
