New moms may become ‘addicted’ to new baby smell

Posted: Updated:
Do you love that "new baby" smell?

New research shows you may even enjoy that smell more if you're a new mother!

The study shows the scent triggers pleasure centers in the brains of women who have just given birth.

The research also shows new moms can enjoy that smell from babies that aren't theirs or ones they don't even know!

One expert likened it to an addict getting a high or a hungry person getting food.
