Some babies come out of the womb being good eaters, but others don’t take to it so easily.

You would think eating would be something that would come naturally to all children, but that’s not always the case. Some refuse to take bottles, while others will only eat if their mother is feeding them. Even some moms have trouble convincing their little ones to eat.

When this man’s wife died, he was left with quite the dilemma. His baby refused to eat and he didn’t know what to do. Of course the baby was hungry, but she refused to take milk from anyone other than her mom.

Finally, as a last resort, this dad printed out a picture of the baby’s mom and created a mask to wear while feeding.

When his little girl saw her momma’s face, she calmed down and smiled and happily drank her milk.


There are some differing stories surrounding this picture. Some people have said that the man’s wife didn’t actually die – she was just gone and the baby wouldn’t eat.

No matter what the actual story, though, this picture illustrates the incredible bond a mother and child have. There is something so special and beautiful about the relationship between a mother and her baby. It begins in the womb, and continues on for the rest of their lives.
