12 Reasons Moms Love Baby Feet!

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! I decided to ask a few other moms; here’s what they have to say about why they love baby toes and feet so much.
