Weight Gain in Babies Linked to High IQ


Got a chubby baby? Well good news! Your baby will probably grow up to be super smart. Research from the University of Adelaide shows that weight gain and increased head size in the first month of a baby’s life is linked to a higher IQ at early school age.

Dr Smithers from the study says the results further highlight the importance for successful feeding of newborn babies.

However, do not let this information make you think it is okay to encourage over-eating! Just as the great genius’ of the world bordered on madness, you will be bordering on cardiovascular issues and child obesity. Keep it healthy, parents!

If you do notice a little chubby, don’t worry. Just make sure to bulk up on educational toys and stimulating play mats to take full advantage of your future genius baby!
