I think the word “addiction” is being used inappropriately here. I seriously doubt that the brain is being remodeled in such a way as to make smelling babies an overriding imperative that causes one to ignore everything else to the point of dying.

Many things activate the reward centers of the brain without being addictive.

Its amazing how the physiological bond is established between a mother and an infant. The species would not survive if this did not occur. Also there is no sound in the world that will awaken and draw a mother to her infant like the infant’s cry. It cannot be ignored. If an alarm clock were made that were effectively to mimic that cry, it would be too effective to use.

They have now stretched the word “addiction” until it officially means exactly nothing.

"A University of Montreal scientist"

ONE Canadian scientist says something. Oh my.
I imagine that all his "research" was totally UNBIASED, used a million women of ALL socio-economic strata, all races, all cultures and so on so the results would have SOME meaning. Lol. NOT.

ONE scientist says this. Wow. He must have used his crystal ball and ouija board along with all his "scientific evidence."

Oh well.

I think addiction is the wrong word, don’t know what word to use, however every one I have seen pick a new born will smell them.
There is a smell that just says “life, there is possibility”.

I always thought it was the Johnson’s Baby Bath.

It’s the “new car smell” for babies.

That’s what happens when you change the little dears on the same bathroom tables people are doing lines off of.

Compare that to “old people’s smell”. Have they studied that?

Strangely enough, eight out of ten people receiving the services of any Planned Parenthood Clinic appear to have developed an immunity to this Baby Rose Addiction.

From the time I can first remember until my Mother died, she always had such a pleasant aroma. If she hugged me I immediately recalled that pleasing scent.

I never did ask my siblings if they had the same experience but I personally think it probably developed while she was nursing me as a baby.

For women, smelling a newborn baby feels as good as drugs are to addicts or cheeseburgers to those just breaking a fast

Twelve and nine years later I still love the smell of my sons’ heads.

Puppy breath is addicting, as well. :-)
