Anyone with a child can agree that sleeping in is almost a mythical idea. That’s what this young mother figured out after trying to get a few extra hours of sleep in the morning. Instead of letting Mom sleep in and get her beauty rest, Baby plots the ultimate wake-up routine that’s filled with face-grabbing, wiggling around and laying on Mom’s mouth! If that can’t get her up, nothing can!
According to Parents Magazine contributor, child psychiatrist, and author, Elizabeth Berger MD, touching a parent’s face is a way to connect emotionally. Babies can’t speak or communicate their feelings well, so face-touching and physical interaction is the only way they can show parents love. Even as a child gets older, they rely on physical touch more and more.
