Bottle-fed babies are left-handed
Are you a leftie or a righty? The duration for which a child is breastfed may determine handedness or the dominant hand, says a research. Infants who are bottle-fed are more likely to be left-handed than those who are breastfed, scientists from the University of Washington claim. The study does not imply, however, that breastfeeding leads to righthandedness. Handedness, whether it be right- or left-handed, is set early in foetal life and is at least partially determined by genetics.
