In safe hands

Let us say my wife is much more at ease holding a baby than I am.

This is my niece, comfortably asleep on her Aunty Nik at one day old.

When I hold her I am less natural, and a little rigid, as I am worried I might squish her. I kind of look like I'm holding a bomb. I'm reliably told this may pass.
