These poems and quotes about babies are all positive, inspirational words of wisdom and love from known sources. The words from unknown sources are on a separate page of Sayings about Babies.
I have always thought babies are an absolute joy and each one is a perfect, unique miracle. The most precious moment of my life was when my first baby was placed in my arms after the birth. The immense feeling of love that I felt was indescribable, even now, thirty plus years later, I still treasure that moment, I just think about the weight of that little bundle of love in my arms and I am uplifted. I also felt the same with my other children, but I think the first sticks in your mind more, because it’s a new experience.
I now have ten grandchildren to adore, each one is yet another miracle and, along with their parents, are the greatest treasures of my life.

Quotes About Babies: A
Babies are thinking and attracting before they are speaking. Even though you are only months old in your physical body, you are a very old and wise Creator, focused in that baby’s body.

Quotes About Babies: B
James Matthew Barrie 1860 – 1937
When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies. And now when every new baby is born it’s first laugh becomes a fairy.

Most of us would do more for our babies than we have ever been willing to do for anyone, even ourselves.
The baby is as much an instrument of nourishment to us, as we are for him.
Joey & Emma
Halle Berry 1966
I am so ready to be a mommy. I can’t wait. I notice every little baby dress, every little baby toy, every little baby thing.
If your baby is beautiful and perfect, never cries or fusses, sleeps on schedule and burps on demand, an Angel all the time… you’re the Grandma.
Pam Brown 1948
Grandad has a long and earnest conversation with his grandchild. He says, you are noisy and wiggly and will be sent back if you don’t pull herself together.. The baby smiles complacently. She has him exactly where she wants him.
The baby rises to its feet, takes a step, is overcome with triumph and joy – and falls flat on its face. It is a pattern for all that is to come! But learn from the bewildered baby. Lurch to your feet again. You’ll make the sofa in the end.
Leo Buscaglia 1924 – 1998
I love to think that the day you’re born, you’re given the world as a birthday present.
Lorna Byrne 1953
All babies are pure love.
Julie & Lowen (2015)
Lorna Byrne 1953
Although a newborn baby is pure love, it is unable to radiate this love out; it hasn’t learnt this yet, just as it hasn’t learnt to walk. The love is inside it, but it doesn’t know how to give it out. When a mother (or someone else) reaches for the baby with love, the force of love from the mother draws the baby’s love out.
As newborn babies, we know we are perfect and deserving of love and feel pure love for ourselves and everyone around us.
Every newborn baby I see glows with love, a glow I see coming from the Soul.
Lorna Byrne 1953
The bonding with a new baby can help people to release love unconsciously.
The helplessness, vulnerability and perfection of a new baby frequently helps parents and grandparents to learn to love themselves and others.
We are all born pure love. As a baby in our mothers womb, we all love unconditionally. Everyone of us, regardless of whether we are wanted, or whether our mums have an easy pregnancy or labour, glow with pure love when we are born.

Arthur C. Coxe
Flowers are words which even a baby can understand.
Russell Crowe 1964
Some people have got advice, some people have got horror stories. I like people that look you in the eye with a glow and say “It’s gonna be cool.”
Quotes About Babies: D
Binnie A. Dansby
Birth is our source experience in the body, and we were conscious at birth, educable in utero. Birth affects our whole subsequent mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
Thomas Dekker 1572 – 1632
Golden slumbers kiss your eyes. Smiles awake you when you rise.

Hilary Duff 1987
There’s something that just happens to you when you have a baby, and you look at their little eyes for the first time when you’re holding them.
Wayne Dyer 1940 – 2015
Spend some time observing babies. They don’t work; they poop in their pants, and they have no goals other than to expand, grow and explore this amazing world. Be like that baby you once were, in terms of being joyful.
Quotes About Babies: E
George Eliot 1819 – 1880
Life began with waking up and loving mother’s face.
Julie & Lowen (2015)
Ralph Waldo Emerson 1803 – 1882
The babe by its mother
Lies bathed in joy
Glide its hours uncounted
The sun is its toy
Shines the peace of all being
Without cloud, in its eyes
And the sum of the world
In soft miniature lies

Eileen Elias Freeman
When babies look beyond you and giggle.. maybe they’re seeing Angels.
Quotes About Babies: G
Vincent van Gogh 1853 – 1890
If one feels the need of something grand, something infinite, something that makes one feel aware of God, one need not go far to find it. I think that I see something deeper, more infinite, more eternal than the ocean, in the expression of the eyes of a little baby when it wakes in the morning and coos or laughs because it sees the sun shining on it’s cradle.
Trina Graves 1961
Letter From Your Newborn
Dear Mummy and Daddy,
No matter what happens between us, during my childhood I will always love you unconditionally.
You are my Guide, my Support, my Lifetime Anchor… For whatever becomes of me, depends upon our time together.
From you I will learn what love is. I will learn to be… Confident or shy, Giving or selfish, Loving or unkind. I will also learn… what is right and wrong, who I should respect and whether I should respect and love myself.
As I come into this world, into your tender care, I am a pure, clean sponge. Over the days, weeks, months and years ahead I will soak up…
Every Look, Every Touch, Every Thought, Every Word, Every Feeling
and they will mould me into the person I will become.
If you treat me with…
Love, Caring, Respect, Tolerance, Forgiveness, Understanding,
even when I do things wrong, then I will grow up to be a child and adult who is…
Kind, Considerate, Confident, Loving, Responsible, Happy
But if you treat me with intolerance, uncaring, harshness, words of anger, or neglect…
I will be sad.
My Quotes About Babies
Letter From Newborn (above) was written on the birth of my first grandchild Jessica in 1997, this was my first poem, it just ‘poured out’ after hearing of her birth. Back then I did not know of the Law of Attraction, or, of how true these words are, so I believe I was guided to write this.
I was delighted Letter From Newborn was used by photographer Drew McWilliams on his site, especially as in his blog he combines two of the things I love – quotes and family photographs – to such a wonderful effect, he captures so much emotion in his pictures.
Baby Vows was written after the birth of my granddaughter Lucy in 2002. Her parents were different religions, so I wanted to create wording for a Naming Ceremony.

Whenever I held my newborn baby in my arms, I used to think that what I said and did to him could have an influence not only on him but on all whom he met, not only for a day or a month or a year, but for all eternity. A very challenging and exciting thought for a mother.

Go forth to life, O child of Earth
Still mindful of thy Heav’nly birth
Thou art not here for ease, or sin
But manhood’s noble crown to win
Tho’ passion’s fires are in thy Soul
Thy spirit can their flames control
Tho’ tempters strong beset thy way
Thy spirit is more strong than they
Go on from innocence of youth
To manly purity and truth
God’s Angels still are near to save
And God Himself doth help the brave
Then forth to life, O child of Earth
Be worthy of thy Heav’nly birth
For noble service thou are here
Thy brothers help, thy God revere

William Wordsworth 1770 – 1850
Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting
The Soul that rises with us, our life’s star
Hath had elsewhere its setting
And cometh from afar
Not in entire forgetfulness
And not in utter nakedness
But trailing clouds of glory do we come
From God, who is our home
Heaven lies about us in our infancy
