Seeing a just-born newborn baby cling to its mother is a beautiful thing. But typically, the little one just wants to nurse or be snuggled. Very rarely does the baby lock its grip on ... its mother's face. However, that's what an adorable brand new baby did when doctors and nurses tried to take the infant away to wash it: Grabbed on to its mother's face and nose like a koala bear -- and oh my god, it's adorable.
Check out one of the cutest -- and strangest -- videos of a newborn clinging to its mother's face for dear life!
Pretty adorable, right? There mom is, lying on the table post-c-section, and she's got her baby grabbing onto her face. Doesn't look like the most comfortable thing in the world, but her smile shows that she doesn't mind. (In fact, get used to it, Mama!)

What a beautiful display of how attached babies are to their mothers immediately after birth. Love this video so much, and really love how the little one stopped crying as soon as it was able to touch its mother again. Beautiful.
