shai.the.pisces commented: “I was told that it’s really a big thing in Caribbean and African cultures for the family to take care of the baby while the mothers healing and I wish we had that in all cultures. Moms really need that support and time. Hopefully grandma gets to see her granbaby again soon 😭😭❤️ so cute”

prittylittlepackages shared: “Awww grandma’s. They become so soft and mushy when grandbaby arrives. I think it reminds them of when theirs was also little. Like a throwback feeling. Me, once my mum arrives, I forget I have a child. From the airport till the day she leaves. Baby becomes hers”
