I am confused how this study determined this outcome. The fact of mothers unconditional love to a baby in NOT any baby but her own. A woman/mother will most likely find her baby perfect and beautiful but will easily find others as unattractive. The research being done by showing another persons' baby does not determine her own feelings towards her own baby. Also, the fact that they kept the photos on for a shorter time to me would just prove that it's a matter of their heart wrenching at a site that should be perfect as the other of a "cute" baby. Of course there may be mothers who abandon their baby's because of their unattractiveness but there are just as many unattractive baby's that are not. This study seems very basic and not at all professional. Thank you.
