Who’s your baby?

All newborns smell sweet to new moms, but if you think your baby smells especially wonderful, you’re right.

In several studies, researchers have discovered that new moms can identify their baby just by smell. It seems to go the other way, too -- your baby recognizes your smell! And even when he’s a toddler, he might still prefer your smell to other people’s.

So if it’s been a few days since you managed to squeeze in a shower, don’t sweat it. You may not enjoy feeling dirty, but at least you can feel assured that to your baby, your smell is just perfect.
