Baby feet and toes are probably one of the first things parents and friends comment on about a newborn baby. They’re just so cute, aren’t they?
In my family, we always say we want to “eat them right up,” which confused my 6-year-old-daughter a bit when her little brother was born. She wondered why anyone would want to eat a baby’s toes and why it seemed like everyone was obsessed with his feet!
So I decided to ask a few other moms. Here’s what they had to say about why they love baby feet so much:
