While I felt comfortable with my son (he was a large male baby as well!), I just feel so helpless around other babies. I think it has a lot to do with being comfortable with your own baby and knowing what he or she likes. I have tried to soothe other babies and the things that worked for my son don't always work for them so I just hand them back . My niece was barely 6 pounds and she was probably 6 months old before I truly felt comfortable holding her.
This! Feel the same way. I like looking, will hold if offered, but don't go out of my way to ask. Not to mention I have baby snobbery....I don't find tons of other newborns to be as cute as my own. ~
