Paolo Hospital in the Chokchai 4 neighborhood loves to get festive with their newborns, and for Valentine’s day, babies were posed as little cupids.

The hospital celebrated Feb. 14 by giving brand-new parents a festive photo opportunity. To fit with the Valentine’s Day theme, they decorated their nursery room with colorful balloons, signs, and fur blankets. Of course, little babies got to wear a set of angel wings and outfits covered in hearts.


Some babies got to cuddle up next to a bow and arrow, a symbol of the Roman god of love and desire. Cupid is often portrayed as a winged baby whose bow and arrows overwhelm their targets with immense desire.

Prior to Valentine’s Day, Paolo Hospital had dressed babies up as Santa Claus for Christmas, chickens for Year of the Rooster, and in Chinese costume for Chinese New Year.

If anything encourages couples to have more babies, this is a probably more effective than the government’s awkward recent campaign.
