Do You Want to Hold My Baby?

It's no surprise when a self-professed baby hater doesn't want to hold your bundle of joy, but what about other people — even fellow mothers? Whether they are accepting visitors at the hospital or need to run after an older child on the playground, women tend to hand off their offspring to each other. Some moms don't necessarily feel comfortable throwing open their arms to tend to a tot because they feel awkward doting on an infant for show.

Though I'm a baby lover, I will admit that teeny tiny infants make me a bit nervous. My kids entered the world with chubby cheeks and fleshy limbs that made them each an armful. I always take precaution and sit down before holding a preemie or five-pounder. Do you like holding babies?
