Babies Can Smell Milk from over a Quarter of a Mile Away
Babies can smell a drop of milk in the air from over a quarter of a mile away.
Researchers have shown that their noses use ‘smell stereo’ to detect tiny delays – no more than half a second long – in the time that odours take to reach one nostril compared to the other one.
When babies experience such a lag, they will turn towards whichever side picked up the scent first, a new study has shown.
