That eye-to-eye contact between POTUS and baby Riley is called en face position. In obstetrics, a position in which the mother and infant are face to face. This position encourages eye contact and is conducive to attachment. President Obama knows how to communicate! Sure miss him— Kathy Higgins Jeffers (@KathyJeffers3) December 19, 2019
