Addicted to Babies

Bradley Mattes   |   October 14, 2013

Many women love the smell of a newborn child and now there’s a scientific explanation. The University of Montreal released a study saying it’s due to the woman’s neural networks in her brain associated with reward. The baby smell triggers this neurological circuit. They tested women by exposing them to the smell of someone else’s newborn—all the while having a brain imaging test. The research shows mothers are more likely to respond to the smell of newborns than women who’ve never given birth. It’s a shame men weren’t part of the study. I can tell you from experience, we too are affected by the delightful smell of newborns. I’ve got a newsflash for the scientists; God wired our brains that way so we’d be over the moon in love with our children.
