This guy literally got charged to hold his brand new baby for the first time and people are p*ssed.

New dad, Ryan Grassley from Utah in the US, posted the picture of the bill on Reddit and highlighted one line in the bill… that one line read “skin to skin after C-sec - $39.95”… so um yeah, he was charged basically 40 bucks to hold his own son.

He wrote with the picture, “The nurse let me hold the baby on my wife's neck/chest. Even borrowed my camera to take a few pictures for us… Everyone involved in the process was great, and we had a positive experience. We just got a chuckle out of seeing that on the bill.”

Obviously people think this is a bit of a joke, the post was soon flooded with comments.

But Ryan is keeping his spirits high; he even created a GoFundMe page to get back the money he lost to hold his child.

He asked for $39.35 … and he is now up to $125 #goals

This is honestly the best story ever.

He then signed off on the post with, “Any money donated over the $39.35 will be put towards a vasectomy because I never want to go though these sleepless new baby nights again.”

What a legend!

And side note how cute is the baby... we would pay to hold him too.
