Babies change people! They make responsible parents out of normal, casual people like you and me.
New parents, when they take their newborns in the crook of their arm for the first time and look at their little versions, it fills them with a sense of love and protection and this surge of emotions sometimes astounds them. How do we come to love someone we have barely known with such intensity? But there is a bond formed when you see little human forms, so soft and so vulnerable.
You want to surround them with everything sweet and soft. Come to think of the most commonly used phrases: ‘soft as a baby’s skin’ or ‘sleep like a baby’ or ‘innocent as a baby’s smile’ or ‘soft as a baby’s bottom.’
Everything that has to do with tenderness, calmness, beauty and anything pleasant and natural more often than not takes the metaphor of baby. Even the most violent image of “don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater’ has to do with something that is still immature, needs care and protection.
But it is a popular understanding that ours is the least responsible generation, that the millennials don’t have the time and energy to make good parents. Yes, we can never equal the way our parents took care of us and we can only aspire to reach there in our wildest dream. Yes, it is challenging and requires a lot of thought and precautions, but nothing in the world can make us compromise on our child’s safety and protection.
No wonders then, we surround our little babies with things which are #SoftestForBabySkin. Be it the soft stuffed bears (read toys, but bears are just the cutest) or soft tissues to wipe them with or preferring the softest diapers over the coarseness of clothes. We even barricade their world from the harsher and harder world outside with soft pillows and cushions.
And it all makes sense. After all the wipes our moms used for us when we were infants were mostly made of clothes meant for adult use. The thick and rough skin of a grown-up can take it, but how will a baby’s skin handle all the gruffness.
Come to think of what are the things that crosses your mind when you think of your baby. What kind of food do you want him to eat? Don’t you make sure that it is either liquid or semi-liquid food so that it is easier for it to swallow?
What are the things that you keep around him? You always make sure that any kind of hard-object is never in the vicinity, only the things which are #SoftestForBabySkin are allowed. After all, the baby depends on you for everything and it needs a lot of taking care.
So, we try to bring to our baby everything available in the universe which is#SoftestForBabySkin and harmless. We choose diaper which are #SoftestForBabySkin instead of triangular coarse cloth bits, prefer towels to soft wipes. We also switched to exclusive baby products because we understand babies are not adults and their needs are exclusive. Their carriers, cots and cradle will always be cushioned so that they are always protected, even when we are not in the immediate vicinity to keep a watch.
We make sure that they can play, sleep and wake up the way they want to because we have done everything to give them a soft and safe surrounding.
