In Sync

There are so many cool things about being a parent, and having a new little one can be especially amazing.

One cool thing I just learned is that a baby can smell and recognize his mom from up to 20 feet away. It is a pretty incredible bond between a mom and her baby. Did you know that moms and their babies can actually instantly synchronize their heartbeats (to within milliseconds!) simply by looking at each other?

Now if only we could bond with a few less middle of the night feedings, that would be wonderful!
