A hungry newborn in Russia was caught on video sucking on another baby’s cheek for comfort.
The babies were one of nine in a group of swaddled newborns at a Russian hospital, resting quietly with the exception of one. The hungry baby was restless and unsettled, wanting to be fed, and wouldn’t stop crying until the baby next to him allowed him to suck on his cheek.
As soon as he latched on, the hungry newborn became calm. When the neighboring baby pulled away, the infant became restless again, hungry and hoping for milk. The generous neighbor then moved his cheek back toward the hungry baby to comfort him further.
The adorable video went viral after it was originally posted in 2014, garnering more than 200,000 views. Gosford Private Maternity Services shared the video on their Facebook page this week, and it was shared more than 2,000 times.
“How divine, I want one, in fact just give me all 8 of them!” one viewer wrote. “Too cute.”
“Oh god that's perfectly beautiful,” another commented.
