Babies smell like heaven. If only they could find a way to bottle that scent.
I love to take a deep long whiff of my baby’s head.
And neck. Even feet.
I think most moms like to smell their babies. Supposedly the baby’s scent stimulates the reward center of the brain, similar to the response a drug addict gets when they get their drugs.
I have noticed that her smell seems to have lessened over time, compared to when she was just born. Back in those days, a simple whiff of her head would make me oh-so-satisfied.
Nowadays, I have to go seek out special spots like the folds of her neck or behind her ears and so on.
And here I would like to share a deep, dark secret with all of you. I often have to creep up to Chichi’s crib when she’s sleeping, lean down slowly, and take a deep whiff like some creepy, crazy person.
Hubby doesn’t seem to share the same addiction. Good thing, since I don’t think there’s enough scent to go around!
Surely, I can’t be the only person addicted to their baby’s scent????
