Beautiful life…

An excerpt from a recent study to see whether fathers, similar to mothers, prefer to hold their babies close to their hearts:

‘Women and mothers prefer to hold infants and young children on the left side of their bodies. The results [of a recent study] showed that a significant percentage (65%) of fathers preferred to hold their newborn infants on the left side. This holding bias in fathers was governed by neither the couple's number of children, nor handedness, nor hemispheric specialisation in emotion perception.’
