A study of 700 pregnant women found that those who took the supplements reduced by one-third the risk their infants would develop eczema. http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn21403-fish-oil-in-pregnancy-reduces-infant-eczema.html Checklist can tell if toddlers' language skills are up to scratch By comparing their child's speaking ability against a checklist of 310 basic words, parents could determine whether they are at risk of language-related difficulties that last into adulthood. Children who fail the test at three could need language therapy to help them reach their full potential. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/science-news/9091626/Checklist-can-tell-if-toddlers-language-skills-are-up-to-scratch.html More Children equals More Weight for Mums Women have long bemoaned the fact that as they have more children, their weight gain from pregnancy becomes more difficult to lose. A new study using a mouse model found that mouse moms who gave birth four times accrued significantly more fat compared to those who gave birth once of similar age. http://www.newswise.com/articles/view/585116/?sc=swhn For more news and events announcements grab our newsfeed from http://www.under-fives.org/newsfeed.html It's free and instantly updates you with the latest news and events via e-mail, your web browser or any news feed reader. ___________________________________________________________ Copyright studholme.net, 2011 You are welcome to copy or forward any part of this newsletter, but please include this copyright notice and web address - http://www.under-fives.org/ Previous editions of this newsletter are archived at http://www.under-fives.org/news.html
