Who are these women?

Mom's Prefer Smell of Their Own Baby's Poop.

There is so much that could be said about this.

Why was this study even necessary? Who cares?
I notice the results of the study will be published in an upcoming edition of Evolution and Human Behavior. It is concluded mother's biologically adapted to overcome their own disgust of Baby droppings so as to take care of the baby, thus giving the baby a better probability of survival. So what happened to all of those other babies BEFORE mothers learned to overcome their personal disgust of human sewage? Were they left to wallow in their own filth? If this is the case about evolutionary behavior of human beings, how did humanity even continue until such an adaptation occured?

I am curious if any fathers were tested.

I am sure there will be much discussion about this on all the homeschool Mom blogs.

No one EVER surveyed our babies' poop!

Was this gov't funded?

Was it the honey-mustard poop of new borns or the nuclear explosions of teethers?

Proving once again that the mind of man left to its own devices can not come up with anything that isn't ...

Well you get the picture.

I'll bet Branjolinia's new baby's poop don't stink. : )

Right and the new Scientologist's messiah-child Suri only passes gold nuggets.

Like I said before...

Avast! On my long seaward voyages, where dysentery runs afoul of the entire crew, I can barely stand to even step foot below deck.

I can't believe I am posting on this. Gah!

But seriously. I suspect that many babies are breast fed, and therefore the mother is smelling "her own brand" as it were. And we all prefer our own brand, as it were.

I am always amused at the evolutionary conclusions drawn by such studies - mothers "developed" this uncanny preference? Come on - even if they had, the biological imperative isn't intelligent - how would it know that mother's didn't like the smell of their babies doo-doo? how would it know that making it smell good would foster survival?

Silliness indeed.

Dude, I'm convinced... we all prefer our own "brand" as it were, because we sat it in when we was tots.

There could be no other explenation.
