Two peas in a pod 👨👶

Father’s Day is just around the corner. To celebrate, we’ve partnered with Sleep Number to round up some impossibly cute photos of sleeping babies with their snoozing dads. The bond-forming closeness they capture — not to mention the frequent exhaustion! — epitomizes those early months of parenthood.

Setting aside the cuteness of these sleepy-eyed duos: Parents, please do consider the risks of co-sleeping with infants. The American Academy of Pediatrics and other experts recommend placing babies to sleep on their backs during naps and at nighttime, among other guidelines.
