She was the apple of his armpit.

Firstly, you can see the baby’s nostril, wide open and accessing oxygen.
Secondly, babies are built to be able to breathe while their face is up against something, ie, a breast.
Thirdly, relax the co-sleeping hysteria and go do some research about proven safety. It’s all out there if you look for it.
I love when a baby’s head smells like armpit.
So THAT’S how we get nose hairs!
Your comment made me laugh. Thanks! (And I might use that.)
This is sweet. I’m sure the baby is fine; mom’s taking the picture so she probably made sure the baby didn’t suffocate.
This isn’t awkward, it’s funny and cute!!
I agree! I love it when babies come out sleeping like a parent!
I thought the same thing!
Looks like they had a long night. Adorable!
Hey, I have those same sheets. =)
Hardly awkward, fully adorable.
This is precious!
There’s nothing more intoxicating than the smell of a baby… I wonder where they get that from?
Isn’t this how Mary Catherine Gallagher (on Sat night live) got started?
It’s hilarious that the baby’s face is in the daddy’s armpit, though it is dangerous as (s)he probably can’t breathe very well and would have a hard time rolling over).
It’s adorable that they’re sleeping in the same position.
Someone is in the room watching the baby (i.e. the person taking the picture). Why do people go straight to the “oh my god, the baby is going to die” response. The baby is clearly fine
They are on a bed and there isn’t anybody on the other side of the baby so it could easily turn its head and or roll over. You also can’t tell by the angle but the baby’s nose may not be actually touching the guy.
I personally think it’s a really cute picture.
This is adorable.
Junior never understood why he had a fascination with armpits in high school. It caused a great deal of embarrassment in the locker room.
Love it. I have a picture eerily similar to this with my husband and son. He’s 12 now and they still freak me out as to their similarities. ( I think they are plotting against me). Love it!!!
I also have two pictures like this of my two older kids. What is it with Dads and napping babies?
Both of my boys sleep exactly like their dad; spread out, hogging the bed! This is such an adorable picture.
