There are very few times in our lives where we experience that feeling of falling in love. It’s that happier-than-anything feeling that someone else is perfect for us. It may be romance, it may be that new best friend, it may be that little baby that we’ve brought into our family. Part of this perfect feeling is the hugging and touching — being totally there for this new relationship. With a new baby putting him or her to the breast can complete the feelings of falling in love.
