Fish oil in pregnancy reduces infant eczema
   Taking fish oil capsules during pregnancy could help 
   women with a family history of eczema to avoid passing 
   on the condition to their children. A study of 
   700 pregnant women found that those who took the 
   supplements reduced by one-third the risk their 
   infants would develop eczema.

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.

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.
