It turns out that Alzheimer’s may be hereditary – you may be inheriting it from your kids!
A number of new mothers have reported experiencing forgetfulness after giving birth and now it has a name – ‘momnesia.’ Researchers say that part of it is due to the lack of sleep that’s inevitable when the baby comes home. Another possible factor is all the things a mom has to learn about taking care of the new arrival. With all the new things occupying a mother’s mind, other information takes a lower priority.
On the upside, they say that once the initial period of readjustment ends, after awhile the mommy brain gets more efficient, and the mother become smarter and learns things faster.
Unfortunately there is still no explanation or cure for Dad-nesia.
