Why Do Baby Scents Make You Happy?

According to a new study, smelling a newborn baby creates a similar reaction to taking drugs and can make mums even happier.

These circuits are activated when a hungry person eats but also in a craving addict receiving his drug. This reaction is so strong that it can work even if the baby is not in front of you. It is in fact, the satisfying of a desire.

Scientists found that a baby’s scent lights up reward centres in our brain in a way that odours can’t. Especially for mums, this smell is like a rush of dopamine to the brain and explains why parenthood makes new mums so happy.
