    Default Want smart kids?

    DON'T FEED ON A SCHEDULE. Feed on demand.

    Check out this study.

    It does mean you pay a price, as found in the study, but it benefits your baby so much in the long run. 4 IQ points is nothing to sneeze at.

    Interesting! I always think it's good to let your baby know from the start that their communication is meaningful and if they are showing signs of hunger, you respect that and nurse them.
