Babies May Benefit From Looking Like Dad, Study Reveals

However, the fathers of those kids were found to spend averagely 2.5 more days in every month with the kids as compared to other fathers.

It's because fathers are more likely to be certain the child is theirs.

Dads take better care of babies who take after them.

Researchers noted that dads who spent more time with babies who resembled them had added certainty about the children's paternity. Researchers at Binghamton University in NY found that fathers are more likely to spend more time with their newborns if they look like them, and that attention from dads, specifically, can have long-term benefits.

Studies suggest evolutionary imperative drives dads to dote on babies who look most like them.

"Fathers are important in raising a child, and it manifests itself in the health of the child", Solomon Polachek, a professor at New York's Binghamton University and one of the authors of the study, said in a statement.

Labour's Joan Burton said she hoped the debate would be respectful and produce a good outcome for the people of Ireland. Mr Harris told the Dail he was mindful of the impact of the Eighth Amendment since it was inserted 35 years ago.

"We find a child's health indicators improve when the child looks like the father", the research states.

Put simply, fathers who are uncertain about their paternal role may draw conclusions based on how much they resemble their baby.

Previous research has found absent fathers are less inclined to get involved in their children's lives if they are poor in health, which the new study aimed to account for.

That increased bonding time improves the overall health of the baby, decreasing potential exposure to harm and allowing for "greater parental time for caregiving and supervision and for information gathering about child health and economic needs".

The relationship between father and child resemblance and care-giving behaviors has roots in evolutionary theory, according to the study.

The Binghamton study calls for supporting policies to help dads who don't live with their kids become more engaged with them, such as parenting classes and bonding activities, health education and job training to boost their income.
