Some people say it is so that dad has no doubt that he is dad and therefore bonds better with her...baby is ensured of mom's care, so in order to ensure dad's care too she/he looks like her.  Nature is incredible

Great blog here for those a bit more scientific http://nimravid.wordpress.com/2008/02/28/infant-paternal-resemblance/

So it's not all in vain, ladies, and it doesn't last forever!  They may look nothing like their dads later in life!  Laughing

WOW!  That's fascinating!  Says it all really though that nature decided babies needed to look like their dads for their dads to bond!  Lol.  It wouldn't be good enough to have offspring that look like the women they fell in love with now would it?  Oh no!  Teeheeheehee!
