Can Drinking While Pregnant Make Your Baby Smarter?
I won't drink while I'm pregnant. Nope, not a sip! I don't like alcohol much anyway and just don't want to chance it.
However, I read an article a couple weeks ago that said a new study found that drinking SMALL amounts of alcohol during pregnancy is extremely beneficial for the baby. Apparently the babies whose mothers drank small amounts of alcohol during pregnancy learned at a quicker rate and had an overall higher IQ than those whose mothers drank no alcohol at all. Obviously though, drinking too much alcohol lowered the babies IQ and could result in FAS.
Personally I think it's a new study and I'd need more proof before I took a chance like that but I thought it was very interesting! In the future doctors may be telling us "Don't forget to drink a little wine!"
