  1. How long do you leave it before trying to high-five babies? I’ll be an uncle in a matter of weeks but I don’t wish to palm the baby in the face.

  2. Ian: Probably about 4 months. You need to wait until the baby realizes that he/she can control those flailing limbs. In the meantime, high-five the new parents – they’ll deserve it! Congrats on becoming an uncle!
