Because of this early attachment and their child’s dependence on them, new parents find it difficult to leave their new baby, even for a short period of time. This time in their baby’s life, when they are so tiny and so completely dependent, can go by very quickly and though it can be exhausting and stressful at times, parents often want to soak up as much of the experience as possible. Before they know it, their once tiny infant will be a walking, talking toddler and those early days will be just a memory.

The baby boy in this video is still very much dependent on his mother’s comfort, love, and presence. So much so that when she steps out for a few minutes to run a few errands, he can’t stop crying. Fortunately, dad knows just what to do to comfort his crying son.

He simply places one of his wife’s dirty shirts next to the baby and he is almost immediately comforted. Where he was inconsolable moments before, he is now happy and smiling. All because he can smell and feel his mother’s presence.

Watch the little boy’s reaction in the link below. Please like and share the video with family and friends, and help put a smile on their faces!
