Baby Poems

As you read these baby poems, we hope it reminds you of how special babies truly are. Many of these are suitable for a baby girl or a baby boy. Also one that you could use for a baby shower invitation.

Feel free to share these with new parents, grandparents and siblings. To quote Vincent van Gogh: "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 its cradle."

Babies Are
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2012

Babies are a gift.
Each with their own uniqueness.
So cuddly and small
It is hard to believe that they will crawl.

Happiness is what they bring
Even with all the babbling
They grow so fast
A baby they won't last.

Cooing and smiling
Wetting the bedding
Eating and sleeping
Whatever they do we are cheering.

Even the most aged
See a baby and they are engaged
Babies melt our heart
They truly are a work of God's art.

Thankful For My Child
Before you were born, my life was a bore.
Really, your Dad and I slept so much longer!
But even though you, get us up in the dew,
Having you, made us much stronger.

Welcome Baby
I wonder little one, who you will be
As I feel you wriggle inside of me.
The turbulent surges of joy that I sense,
The feeling of awe while I’m bound in suspense.
Words to Welcome Baby

Poems About Babies

Children are the most wholesome part of the race,
the sweetest, for they are the freshest from the Hand of God.
Whimsical, ingenious, mischievous,
they fill the earth with joy and good humor.

The Little Things
My hands were busy through the day
I didn't have much time to play
The little games you asked me to.
I didn't have much time for you.

What a Baby Costs
How much do babies cost?" said he
The other night upon my knee;
And then I said: "They cost a lot;
A lot of watching by a cot,
A lot of sleepless hours and care,
A lot of heartache and despair,
A lot of fear and trying dread,
And sometimes many tears are shed
In payment for our babies small,
But every one is worth it all.

Baby Steps
You were so small my little treasure
watching you grow has been a pleasure.
I remember those first baby steps
Some made you laugh, some made you sweat.

A Child
A child is
A butterfly in the wind,
Some can fly higher than others;
but each one flies the best it can.
Why compare one against the other?

The Childs Appeal
I am the child.
All the world waits for my coming.
All the earth watches with interest to
see what I shall become.
Civilization hangs in the balance,
For what I am, the world of tomorrow will be.

The First Steps
Last night I held my arms to you
And you held yours to mine
And started out to march to me
As any soldier fine.
You lifted up our little feet
And laughingly advanced;
And I stood there and gazed upon
Your first wee steps, entranced.

We hope our baby poems and quotes are ones that suit your occasion. They can be used in a note sending congratulations, or just as a reminder about how dear babies are.

A newborn will change the lives of the parents, of siblings, of grandparents. Babies are totally dependent on their parents. And the parents find their life has changed usually more than they imagined when the newborn is at home. But the love that comes when they first see their baby is unlike any love there is. And that love stays with a parent no matter what age their child is.

Whatever your use for the poems, the Poet's words express the wonder and miracle of a baby!
