The Science Behind the Cuteness of Babies (Video)

Babies are cute. That's what most of us think. When seeing a baby, there's always this urge within us to hug and squeeze him/her. But why do we do it? Are we hard-wired to like "cute" things? Is this "cute feeling" an entirely human trait? The folks over at the popular YouTube channel AsapSCIENCE seems to have the answers.

AsapSCIENCE makes a reference to the concept of "baby schema". This is a set of facial and body features, that make a creature appear cute and activate in others the motivation to care for it. Watch them explain the science behind baby cuteness in the video presentation below.
