Laugh For Your Baby’s Health

Laughing babyLaugh and the world laughs with you - and so will your baby. At least that's what a recent study out of Japan found:

Breastfed babies with eczema experienced milder symptoms if their mothers laughed hours before feeding them, according to a study by Hajime Kimata at the Moriguchi-Keijinkai Hospital in Osaka, Japan.

Kimata also found significantly higher levels of melatonin in the laughing mothers' milk. The hormone is associated with relaxation, and levels are reduced in people with eczema.
