A French nurse posted the best video on YouTube -- newborn twin babies hugging in the bath. Seriously -- this is just about the cutest, most touching thing you’ll watch in a long, long time. I take no responsibility for any deaths by adorableness when you see it.
The little ones can’t stop holding each other as the nurse cradles them in the water, and they just look so happy and content to be together that it’s easy to imagine what it was like for them in the womb. No wonder twins have such a special bond!

The video was actually intended to showcase a new technique for bathing very young babies (under 2 months) called The Baby Spa. It was invented by Sonia Rochel, a newborn nurse in Paris, and involves gently caressing an infant under warm water with no soap for 10 to 15 minutes. She asks that parents don’t try to re-create it at home.
It’s got to be so comforting to babies to feel like they’re back in their safe, warm womb -- even better in the case of twins, when you’re back with your womb-mate.
