Big-Headed Babies Likely To Be Brighter

 

According to ABC13: "Normally, someone calling you "big head" is not a compliment, but it just might be a great thing for your little ones. According to new research from United Kingdom health resource UK Biobank, babies born with larger craniums are actually likely to be smarter."



 

ABC13 continues: "But what exactly constitutes a big head? Babies born with a head circumference larger than the average of 13.5-14 inches were likely to exhibit greater intelligence later in their lives.However, big heads weren't the only predictor of intelligence. The study also found that greater overall health is linked to higher levels of intelligence."
