Brad­shaw said Clai­borne at Ade­laide pro­vides the toys, which are dis­in­fected be­fore and af­ter play­time, and the res­i­dents can play with and hold the in­fants, and feed them and change their di­a­pers if they want to.

"Those smiles — oh my God. They are just so tick­led to see those ba­bies," Brad­shaw said.

Brad­shaw said lo­cal moth­ers and fam­ily mem­bers of res­i­dents bring their in­fants for the res­i­dents to play with, and any­one else is wel­come to come. Chil­dren from new­borns to two years old are in­vited.
