A new study shows that women are more likely than men to look away from an unattractive baby, suggesting that a mother’s love may be influenced by facial beauty, HealthDay News is reporting.

Researchers showed men and women pictures of normal and abnormal babies, and both sexes gave the babies the same attractiveness ratings. But women tried harder not to look at the photos of the not-so-attractive infants.


The problem: Ugly baby. The cure: Baby makeup!

You must always remember to steel yourself whenever a new parents is going to show you pictures of their baby. It could be an ugly baby, and you don’t want a shriek to be your initial reaction. Trust me.

I’ve often wondered what people mean when they say an ugly baby will “grow into its looks.” Does it mean that as the child gets bigger, the ugly spreads out into something slightly more attractive? Or does it mean that everybody gets used to the looks the baby gets as it grows up?
