14 Photos Of The Cuddliest, Smushiest, Snuggliest Sleeping Babies

Karen Whiltshire is a maternity, newborn and baby photographer with a very special talent: Putting babies to sleep in so-cute-you-could-eat-'em poses.

Her trick? Swiping her fingers over the little ones' eyelids and playing a hairdryer sound on her phone. And while parents would probably love to have Whiltshire on speed dial, the United Kingdom-based photographer only uses her gift to capture shots of newborns in a trancelike state.

It's really too much.
