Actually, I have no idea what kind of parenting Albert Einstein received. What I have read though, is that according to a researcher at the University of Essex and Oxford University, children who are nursed on demand have higher IQs. They found that a child’s intelligence was linked to how in tune his or her mother was with the baby’s needs. These babies also showed to be the most emotionally secure in comparison to their non-fed on demand counterparts.
Didn’t breastfeed and worried that your child’s intelligence has suffered? Babies that were bottle fed on demand were also found to have the extra four to five point increase in IQ over schedule fed babies.
Moral of the story? Be in tune with your baby’s needs. If they’re showing signs of hunger, feed them. If they’re crying for you to hold them, get in some extra snuggles. The laundry can wait.
