Love that sweet newborn baby smell?
It’s midnight, and if you’re snuggling with your wide-awake newborn, then you’re probably also sniffing your baby’s head.
It smells amazing, right? That newborn baby smell…
Ever wonder why it smells so sweet?
It’s not your imagination. The top of your baby’s head releases pheromones that trigger YOUR body to release dopamine in your brain. In other words, the smell of your baby’s head is basically a drug that makes you feel good.
So if you feel like you’re addicted to your baby, you’re absolutely right.
If you’re feeling exhausted right now, try cuddling your baby close to your face and breathing deep! It won’t help your tiredness, but it might help you enjoy your baby time.
