Program Description

From the ability to predetermine a baby's sex, to the possibility that fetuses can be taught inside the womb, BODYWATCH questions the advisability and reliability of recent infant research, offering a common-sense guide to babyhood. Experts discuss the perils of dieting while pregnant; show how some of the intensive learning techniques advocated by "superbaby institutes" rob babies of warmth and security; reveal some little-known nutritional information, such as why babies need butter, and finally, discuss simple methods for boosting a baby's intelligence without sacrificing emotional security.
