One I’ve been wanting to use for a while – obviously not one of my kids!  Yes, a newborn baby can grip strongly enough to support their own weight.

See, I never did trust my little ones’ grips enough to try. They seemed to release to quickly. I also love the eerie, mad-scientist feel to this picture and how rigid the baby’s body is. Great photography 🙂

Apparently it only lasts for a few days. I think it’s cool that some mother had enough trust to do this!

wow that is a crazy photo. Some are born super strong. I know my first son was SUPER Strong. The nurses comment on that right after he pee’d on one of them lol

Monkey babies cling to their moms. My granddaughter kept her fists curled tightyl for months and used her feet rather than her hands, until she could coordinate her fingers. They do have just amazing strength.
