A new study about the interaction between parents and infants, and how it affects the baby later on, was published on Monday in the Pediatrics journal. One of the facts revealed in the study is that mothers talk more to infant daughters. It’s known that infants pay more attention and are more exposed to the mother speaking to them, especially in the first year of their life. This explains why the child often pays more attention to the mothers than to other members of the family in which the baby was born.
One of the authors of the study, Dr. Betty Vohr said that: “Infants respond to both parents in the first months, with a greater response to moms.”
