There is a lot to learn when you have a new baby. What temperature should their bath water be? How should you get the baby to sleep? Is it better to breast or bottle feed? Parents are bombarded with an overwhelming amount of information in those first few months, and they’re trying their best so their kids will grow up healthy, happy and hopefully clever.
It is a long wait between those early years and when a child’s smarts will begin to show, so for the extra-curious parents out there we have a solution, and it’s been hiding hopefully not too close under your nose. Thanks to new research, your baby’s poo could be an indicator of how smart they will grow up to be.
Yes, that is correct. Baby excrement is now being tested for indicators on how high their IQ will be. Because parents really do need another thing to worry about with newborns.
