Babies Thrive When Raised By Their Mothers

A British study has found that babies fare better developmentally when cared for by their mothers. One of the study authors says: "The social and emotional development of children cared for by someone other than their mother 'is definitely less good.'"

It's kind of interesting to me that this might be viewed as surprising news in some's such fundamental common sense.

Thinking along parenting lines, Maggie Gallagher had a fun column last week about parenting differences between men and women. Another surprise: women love to care for their babies! :)
